Nike Drop The Air Force 1 'South Korea' Edition

Nike drops another addition to the impressive South Korea collection, with the iconic Air Force 1 low getting a dose of the striking white tiger graphic, but in a far more subtle presentation than most of what’s come before.

The Nike South Korea collection has not disappointed so far, after Nike selected the Asian nation as its latest canvas for creativity. The Swoosh followed up the release of the new 2020 kits with an equally impressive apparel collection and an Air Max 95, wrapped in a wild design. That has since been followed up by a similarly impressive Air Presto, and now the South Korea focus is switched to the iconic Air Force 1 Low.

Taking a more subtle approach to the recently released Air Presto, the Nike Air Force 1 Low features a tumbled leather construction, with the white tiger stripes that are synonymous with the South Korea collection, restricted to the Swoosh. The blue and pink hues that blend through the wider collection once again appear here, although separated, with the pink on the left and the blue on the right, flashing through the outsole and laces of each. The more radical design seen on other items is in fact contained within, spread across the insole to continue the more subtle approach. The nation’s revamped crest sits proudly on top of the tongue, while the nation’s Taegeukgi symbol once again finishes the design off on the heel.
