Eric Koston's third Nike SB sneaker is almost here.

Materializing as the Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3, this new model follows the trend established by Koston's previous sig shoes by pushing the envelope in terms of technology and design. Although we don't yet have a complete tech breakdown, it's clear that these are one of Koston's most unique shoes based on these images alone.

The majority of sneaker's upper isn't anything too crazy — there's the fused synthetics, suede, and Flywire support we've become accustomed to seeing, but there is one design element that looks rather out of place for a skate shoe.

Above the collar lies a sock-like ankle sleeve reminiscent of the Nike Kobe 9 and Mercurial range. This supportive sleeve is more than likely constructed with Flyknit, making for one of the interesting looking Koston sneakers yet.

A U.S. release date has not been confirmed, however these have already started popping up in Asia. Check back soon for official release details and take a look at a second colorway below.
