    Although legitimate influencers are found few and far between, Eric Koston has steadily earned that title throughout his prolific skateboarding career. Aside from capturing titles and winning awards in almost every major competition, the celebrated skater has played a key role in the progress of skateboard footwear and apparel with an extensive list of top brands that now includes Oakley with the launch of his first EK EYEWEAR COLLECTION. Not only has Koston’s influence transcended skateboarding and encompassed all of action sports, but he has also paved the way for a younger generation of skaters, artists, fashion forward thinkers and the culture of skateboarding.
