As part of Nike‘s “Free Expression” campaign, Korean artist Novo has given his spin on the Free RN silhouette. Taking inspiration from Seoul, the sneaker comes with an off-white upper decorated with a range of hand-drawn illustrations inspired by the speed, freedom and hope Novo experiences working in Seoul.
The new motifs include a paper airplane, as well as slogans such as “Hope Run Seoul” and “You Me City.” Discussing the collaboration, Nike explained Novo’s influences: “To keep pace, visual artist Novo works hard and fast, which leaves him with a constant sense of fatigue. It also brings him hope. Because at the end of each day, that rewarding, welcome fatigue means he’s made big strides towards his dreams.” The Novo x Nike Free RN is available now from the Nike Korea web store.
