11. Nike Eric Koston 2
How do you improve Nike's greatest ever skate shoe? Make it tougher. All the hallmarks of Eric Koston's first Nike signature shoe remain-the influence of running technology for comfort and the streamlined aesthetic-but the fit has been improved through the heel and the shoe has been made more breathable. To the naked eye, there's almost no change (save for the golf-inspired tooling). And, that's the glory. A new shoe, incorporating new tech, that feels like an old favorite.
