Nike and skateboard pro Eric Koston have collaborated once again, only this time to create a hybrid kick that combines elements of the Koston 1 and the Air Max 90, which is a notable favorite of Koston’s. Introducing the Nike Koston Max! Built for the board, the streets, and everywhere else you choose to rock ‘em. A full-length Lunarlon insole provides ideal comfort while the rubber back and heel details enhance the shoes durability. The enforced collar and wavy seamwork throughout are classic staples of the Air Max 90. Everything you desire in a shoe can be found in the Nike Koston Max.

No grip, too stiff

I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:1-3 months ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:intermediate
I got these and a pair of Dunk Lows in part of a "buy one get one 50% off" sale at a CCS retail store. I actually bought the Kostons as my main shoe and the Dunks as a backup, but the Kostons are just too stiff. The dunks were comfortable and ready to skate in out of the box.
Oh, and that orange thing on the heel is hideous. I plucked the threads out and removed them. Lastly, I had to buy a whole size larger than what I usually wear.
Otherwise, they're comfortable to wear and walk around in. The sole is really hard also, so when I walk on anything but carpet they sound like dress shoes. I actually kind of hate them and wish I never bought them, but I'm kind of stuck with them. At least they're comfortable around the house I guess.
Pros: cool colors, comfortable
Cons: poor ankle support, poor grip, runs large, poor board feel

 Independent Andrew Reynolds Stage 11 Gc Hollow
Independent Andrew Reynolds Stage 11 Gc Hollow
Show some love for The Boss with his signature Independent Stage 11 GC Hollow Trucks. With a newly reworked geometry and design, Independent's Andrew Reynolds Stage 11 GC Hollow Trucks maintain the classic look of the Stage 10 Trucks with more features than ever! Improved and easier turning, better stability at high speeds and over harsh landings, less wheel bite, more overall grind clearance, longer lasting, stronger on impact, and improved "No Hang-up" yoke! Sizes: 129mm- 7.75" axle, fits deck sizes 7.5" to 7.75". 139mm- 8" axle, fits deck sizes 7.75" to 8.25". 149mm- 8.25" axle, fits deck sizes 8.25" to 8.75". Set of 2 trucks. Other features: Hollow kingpin and axle, 356 T6 Aluminum Hangers and Baseplates, 4140 Chromoly Steel Axles, and Grade 8 Kingpins. Made in the USA.
 

Are these trucks low, medium or high?

Are they 139 standards?
The Stage 10 Reynolds were 51.5mm, since the standards are 55mm and the lows are 48.5mm, they were mids I guess (but not labeled as such). You should probably contact Independent to ask. Their website has a description that says they're standard height, but I kinda think they're mids.
