11. Eric Koston
Sneaker Company: Ă©S Footwear
Just a couple years after turning pro, Eric Koston teamed up with Ă©S Footwear and quickly became one of the top skateboarders of the late '90s. His Ă©S Koston signature line followed suit right from the beginning with the Ă©S Koston 1. In fact, the original Koston was so popular, when Koston landed with Lakai in 2007, they paid tribute to the Ă©S design with a remake. Later models reflected Koston's Laker fandom and Air Jordan influence. Koston's 10 years with Ă©S Footwear could easily be considered the best skate shoe line in historyâ€”although his Nike line is just getting started.
