Yep, you guessed it! Everybody’s favorite, Eric Koston pro boards for WKND.
The Koston 2 shoe release was held at Nike‘s Sixth & Mill in L.A. The whole skate park was turned into a mini-golf course designed as mini replicas of some well-known skate spots. Killer music provided by The Blackouts (Atiba & Ako) and food was catered by Free Range L.A. Thanks to Nike for a fun night! Here are some photos:

Is there still a need for a technical skateboarding shoe? The godfather of tech skate footwear Eric Koston and the SB crew think so… This weekend Nike SB launches their Zoom FP microsite giving us more than a few good reasons to give our dogs a break, and by the looks of Koston’s socks in the commercial below, his dogs need one! The Nike SB Zoom FP has a sleek, toned down, minimalistic look, while providing Flex for mobility, Zoom Air to absorb impact, a Polyethelyne sockliner for a seemless “sock-like” fit, plus they are the lightest shoe Nike SB has made to date. For more info visit their mini site & check the info below, save up a few bucks and get them first here as an Active Online Exclusive.

The Nike SB Zoom Koston One is one of the most anticipated shoes that Nike has released in quite some time. This shoe features a full suede upper, simple design, and simple colorway. The best part about this shoe is that it is 100% built for skateboarding. The shoe features a Lunarlon Heelcup that will help with comfort and usability. This means that you won’t be getting any more heel bruise with these on. The comfort, style, and technology are second to none.

We caught up with Jason Hernandez, Justin Brock, Daryl Angel and a bunch of key players who attributed to the making of Nike SB’s Debacle at the World Premiere this past Wednesday night to get the scoop on the video. In light of Debacle being an all HD video, we too filmed in HD. We also touched on the fact that Nike SB just added Eric Koston to the team roster. Our friend Jeremy Adams gave us some photos he shot from the night to post up for you all as well. Enjoy!

By now you know that it’s official, our friend Eric Koston won’t be skating in Lakai’s anymore. But which shoes will he be skating next? That’s the question that the skate world has been buzzing about for the last couple weeks. Here’s is your chance to vote for which shoe company he’ll be on next..and then talk amongst yourselves below in the comments.
UPDATE INSIDE INFORMATION: 4/28/09
– Eric has been seen hanging out with Sole Technology executive, Don Brown….could it be Etnies or even his OG skater boots, ES?
– Eric is close friends with Tim Gavin (who is a partner in DVS). Could Koston go to DVS and help one of the best shoe brands get back to the top?
– Eric has been known for rocking both Nike and Vans in the past. Both Nike and Vans are printing cash and could afford to pay the best of the best. Will he follow his heart and step back into his personal favorites?
– Eric has a reputation for making good business decisions. Could it be the start of a new shoe brand and skateboard revolution?
