For when you have a $150 burning a hole in your pocket and want to be able to go straight from skating to your indoor soccer game. Otherwise, fuck no. I play soccer, too and I wouldn't even wear boots that look like that.

150 for skate shoes is insulting! Price should drop before summer, maybe n clearance racks too. Koston obviously doesn't care about skaters, no skater would design a shoe to cost 150 for the kids! P rod too fuck that guy, nike can blow me.

$150 for skate shoes?  Fuck no. Make the regular Kostons in a black and white colorway like every other shoe and I might buy some Nikes for $60 but I doubt it.

damn even the photo at the top of the article with koston he's got that hype beast haircut.

The Koston 1 and Koston 2 were/are both phenomenal skate shoes. The K2 wasn't as popular with a lot of people because of the look and extremely tight fit, but that said, the fit is what made it so great IMO. The heel lock in the K2 is second to none. Anyway, my point is Koston designs his shoes with a lot of attention to fit, shape, and skateability so my guess is this K3 is a really good skate shoe.

I'm definitely down to skate it but that $150 price tag is bumming me out.

Tactics has a ton of tech details & pics for shoe nerds: http://www.tactics.com/info/nike-sb-koston-3-hyperfeel-skate-shoes

The red & black colorways are dope IMO. $150 is too expensive for a skate shoe but I'd cop at a lower price

It's $150 with the "tech and design" of the shoe. Koston doesn't set the price. He's not like "let's make me shoe so 1 of 10 skaters can afford it". Nike sets the price.

Or Maybe that's his plan, lol.

If you were Koston would you design a shoe skater kids can't afford? Prod is just as bad, enough with the technology shit, Nikes only shoes that stuck longterm were the dunkSB and Blazers! All others are a cash grab, there is literally no reason for a sock embedded in the shoe.. Or that tiny little airbag under the heel. Complete gimmicks we will laugh at 1 year from now.

You're willing 2 MAYBE pay 50% for Nikes "most technologically advanced skate shoe ever." That says a lot. There's no way this shoe is easy to put on or off. Breathability must be an issue with nothing escaping up top, probably just some sweaty sock liner after every sesh, bet these shoes get stinky real quick.

Took me 2 min each when it was brand new to put them on, for sure your foot isn't going anywhere when you are wearing them.

As for skating, no idea what the hell the sockliner feels like after the session yet.

$150 for a shoe that is going to get obliterated from use is outrageous.

The sock liner is made out flyknit so it should be pretty breathe able. They talked about in the interview.

How much do skaters really care about technology in their products, especially when it has an effect on the price? Compared to all other athletic type activities we burn through gear the fastest.

Pretty sure the last tech advance to really take off and change shit up AND stick around was  urethane wheels. I guess you could say adding a nose to the decks as well.

Another interview on highsnobiety:

http://www.highsnobiety.com/2016/02/29/eric-koston-nike-hyperfeel-3-interview/

Nike is clearly going for the hypebeast segment instead of skaters.
It appears througout their marketing strategy as well as the design and the price of the shoe.

Nonetheless, these shoes probably skate well.
