Dude are you kidding me man we got paul, theotis, corry, shane, daryl come on now we got Koston your all just haters because those gay jerking black guys wear them, best team/shoe…..PERIOD

damnn, Nike makes about hmmm, 7 billion dollars a year. About 3 million goes to Nike SB. That means their riders get like whatt,around 200,000 a year? Lakai in general probably makes 80,000 a year. so they’re riders are prettttttttttyyy broke compared to Nike SB riders. Besides like myself, Eric Koston is a shoe-head. Both of us collect SB’s and jordans. He has a big-ass collection. So now, he’s hella rich and gets shitload of free Nike SB product.

I cant believe he got so many yes’s. He should not have left lakai, thats messed up. Would Reynolds leave Emerica? Chris Cole leave Fallen? Rowley leave vans? Other than maybe starting a new company like the supra guys or somethings you shouldnt switch. We all know Koston is an ego-maniac, he’s good but hes a frontrunner. Never liked him, and this seals it. He doesnt have the same mentality as say the Altamont guys.

its wack… people talk about p rod being a sell out… but look whos jumping to a new company… cant he just stick to one…
nike sb is w.e its just wack how people i see where them and dont skate -.-
w.e its his choice..

IF YOU NEVER TRIED SB DONT SAY NOTHING BECAUSE ONCE YOU TRY A PAIR IM SURE YOULL LIKE THEM. AND IF ERIC WANTS TO MAKE MONEY THEN LET HIM AND ANYONE WHO THINKS HE IS A SELLOUT THEN YOUR A HATER(PERIOD)
aND WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE TEAM SHANE O NEIL THEOTIS AND DARYL ANGEL THOSE GUYS CAN SKATE ERIC BEIN ON IT JUST MAKES THE TEAM EVEN BETTER. AND SBS ARENT FOR POSERS JUST LET PEOPLE SKATE WHAT THEY WANT TO SKATE.

koston likes basketball and skateboarding. thats why he wanted to join nike. he should do what he likes. **** you haters

well hes not as big of a sell out as greg lutzka i mean think of what his old shoe commpany said “he’s leaving us for k-swiss now he might as well ride for little tike trucks”

i dont get what the big deal is koston is not selling out nike sb has helped skating like with the tres i mean emerica didnt think of that and i think we should think more about buying **** off the internet. we should get stuff from are local skateshops but whatever

Look, for all of you that complain that Nike SB is such a big company and just is in skating for the money, its bullshit. Any true goal of a company is to earn money. Plus the head leaders of Nike SB are skateboarders. If you dont believe me, just go to the Nike site itself. You wont find Nike SBs for sale on there.

Who cares…so what if Koston made it to Nike SB. Big deal.
Shuttup and go skate

nike sb makes the best shoes outta all the companys. every pair ive had are ****** amazing. and the kid saying they are poser shoes is a dumbass. in reality the only people even saying the word poser is one.

People need to get on that new converse shoe range, they’ve got a badass new team including nick trapasso, so sick. BTW ******* nike, they are a ****** company, i hate them cos they dropped Bjorn Johnston just cos he moved back to his homeland, New Zealand.

Supra, Emerica, es, DVS, Lakia, etc, these are the companies that should be supported. His style fits SB, but they need to back the **** off.

To most of the people hating on koston for the switch, just shut the hell up.

You won’t be calling koston a sell out if you saw the money in front of your eyes.

He’s been in the industry for a while and he really does deserve the money.

Nike is the lamest **** ever but the reason koston left lakia for nike is because lakai couldnt afford to sponser him, while he was on the team the money was being split so him, carrol, lenoce, biebel and everyone else could be paid….when he left it was so his freinds carrol, howard, lenoce, biebel could be paid more and himself as well on nike…..still hate nike with a passsion though

For me it would depend upon Koston on how he is going to play with his career. It’s hes decision so he knows best what he is getting into. It’s not about the shoes or what so ever. Its how he plays it now hes on SB. Cheee. Chill bras. Louie from Philippines.

master dave
u dont kno what your talking about
look at stefan janoski hes been hopping around and so are others
doesnt mean that if they change sponsors theyll be frowned apponned
this gives a better chance for the rider to rank themselves higher and recognition to the skateboarding industry
don’t hate appriciate

sold his soul and respect, if dill can live in a 3 room apartment why the hell can’t any other “RESPECTED” professional skateboarder do the same?

all yall are idiots all these guys care about is the money **** thats what everyone cares about say lakai paid him this amount and sb is gonna pay more only an idiot would turn that **** down and i mean you gotta get in the real world its all about making money and making your way to the top

way to go eric. skateboarding is a job if everyone doesnt know it. wait til you gotta pay them bills. he did a great job on the lakai vid, and for that short amount of time. im an old dude, been following eric since h-street, and its good to see him get what he deserves. he has done tremendous good for skaters all over the world. cant wait to see the shoes!

Unless you actually make your own boards(Nyjah & I&I), shoes, wheels etc, then don’t talk about what others are doing.If if wasn’t for the posers your favorite brands would be dead!- Do some research and find out who is the parent company of Vans. Everything in your crib has a label. your dog is a Toyota!
don’t hate, get yours, at the end of the day it’s jus you & your skateboard- jus do YOU!

ok just bcuz nike is a big corporation doesnt mean that all their shoes r 4 posers, bcuz wen skateboarding first started everyone was wearing nikes for skating in and plus i c waaaaaaaay more posers wearing globes, emerica, and adio
but i do like emericas

**** koston for switching. Lakai is so much better, he’s a ******* sellout. In it all for the money.
Thats a bunch of bullshit.
Its supposed to be about skating, not the popularity train.

Word on the street is Lakai couldn’t really afford to pay Koston anymore… I think it was a mutual ending of the partnership which is sad… but if more kids bought lakais instead of jumping on the nike train maybe it wouldn’t end up the way it did…

business men and women that don’t skate make money out of skateboarding and look down on skateboarders as bate for the prey
but in the end i guess it all collides.

o ya cause p rod is reallly a poser you no what suck it people can where or skate whatever they want skate what u want to skate dont let any one else tell you diffrent!

sponsor loyalty? he has 2 sponsors on crailtap, fourstar which he owns. him going to sb is like him going on independent. he left royal which is a crailtap company to go to independent. now he just left lakai to go to sb. it’s all fine it just adds to his career and it’s not like it’ll effect his skating in anyway.

I have to agree with Master Dave thats exactly what i mean Koston you just need to say no to Nike man keep growing that Girl and Es man

I really don’t care. It seems as if every thing now has a target on skateboarding. If I were one of you lil complainers, I would focus on the recent things that will make it more of a mainstream activity. At least Nike has been seen in the scene. Unlike kswiss or puma. Koston on Nike is just chill. Lakai had dropped Alex, Anthony and now koston. Maybe they couldn’t afford to pay them, so it makes sense.

PS, didn’t Nike go to Koston first than Paul??
