Nike has given its Air Presto a bold South Korean makeover. Following its Japan-inspired Nike Air Streak unveiled just yesterday, the footwear giant has decorated the new renderings with monochromatic tiger stripe patterns alongside South Korea’s national colors.

Starting at the top of the shoe is a semi-translucent patch logo, complemented by black laces and jagged seams along the tongue. Popping out from its black and white uppers is the two-toned rubber lace cage. The piece boasts red and blue palettes, with the former displayed on the lateral side; the latter, medial. Furthermore, the two colors join at the center of the heal, finished off by the nation’s Taegeukgi symbol. All of these details rest over a crisp white midsole, accompanied by thin outsoles coming in the same aforementioned palettes.

Though no official release dates have been confirmed, the shoes are expected to land on Nike Korea’s website later this year.
