The Koston 3 is different. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It definitely stands on the periphery (with little company) of what you’d typically associate with skateboarding footwear. Koston, and Nike, have filled a void in the sector – it can’t have been an easy decision to back such a unique product. This two-tone iteration has a little bit of an orca vibe, the white welded ollie guard that curves around the toe box resembles the underbelly of the oceanic apex predator. The K3 is predominantly made up in black with the far reaches of its sock-like collar bearing a touch of ‘Tiffany’ turqouise, while the Swoosh pops in contrasting white. Taking the tech to the next level, this colourway is given an XT (Extra Tough) treatment designed to extend the longevity of the sneaker.
The Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3 XT is available now from select Nike SB stockists including Flatspot.
