UPDATE: We've just got our hands on some updated shots of the Soulland x Nike SB 'FRI.day' Pack. Marvel at the masterful make-up in the gallery above and get ready to cop via Soulland online and Nike.com on August 12.
Copenhagen’s Soulland give two of Eric Koston’s Nike SB silhouettes a deluxe makeover. Dubbed the ‘FRI.day’ pack, the colab aims to harness that undeniable feeling of optimism that abounds at the end of the week (unless you work in hospitality). Soulland remakes the Koston 1 in navy tumbled leather paired with peach lining and a much smaller Swoosh than the OG version. It’s a refined colour combo and brings a luxury feel to the skate sneak.
The second half of the pack features a tonal remake of the futuristic Koston 3 Hyperfeel. Featuring a mix of materials, including what appears to be a hairy suede heel counter and multi-coloured mesh panels, the high-top will strike a chord with the fashion sneaker crowd. Finished with ‘FRI.day’ writ large across the sneaker’s sock-like upper, the Koston 3 stands as a textbook example of inventive collaboration – there’s no point in playing it safe.
