As one of the newest members of the Nike SB team, you would expect Eric Koston to be the lowest on the totem pole. Then again, as Eric Koston his history with awesome skate shoes is about as rich as it gets. Nike’s second Dunk for him is this High Premium that’s been dubbed the “Thai Temple.”
Koston left Thailand at 9 months old, so his roots were the inspiration for this colorway. Metallic gold leather is used for the toe box and quarter panel. That leather glistens in direct light similar, showing a gold flake design. The silver Swoosh uses the same trick. Gold suede is used on the toe, midfoot and foxing. The ankle area is also gold, but it uses a cross-thatched pattern. Finally, touches of red can be found outlining the Swoosh and at the top of the tongue. These are only a few weeks away and should be at your local spot soon.
