Our first Twit-Kicks All-Star, Andy Oliver, is also one of the biggest sneaker bargain-hunters on the net. In his weekly column, Andy helps save you money on sneakers everyone else is paying a grip for.
Andy says: “It's been almost two years since Eric Koston left Lakai for the bright lights of Nike SB. A few sick Dunk makeups later, we finally have Koston's first Nike pro model, and I can say with certainty that it was worth the wait (check out Russ Bengtson's 10 Questions piece if you have any doubt). The Koston 1 has injected some much needed life into the SB line, and has been flying off the shelves in skate shops around the globe. This week's sneaker deal sees the Koston 1 available for only $65. This is the best new sneaker model of 2011, and you won't get a better shoe for this price. Period.”
