To celebrate Hangul Day (October 9), Nike is releasing two commemorative Air Force 1 Lows dressed in Korean text embroidery and traditional colors.

The first sneaker is dressed in black leather uppers with Korean alphabet imprints decorating the toe box and lateral panels. The five colors featured on the sneaker are dotted across the geometric text and displayed clearly on the heel counter stripe, denoting the traditional Korean color spectrum known as Obangsaek. Gradient contrast stitching is found outlining the Nike Swoosh and midsoles, and additional gradient hues adorn the tongue tab branding. Below, a black midsole and white rubber outsole complete the look.

The second “Hangul Day” sneaker is a women’s-exclusive featuring a similar design language. Differences include a base color switch from black to cream and Korean text embroidery in place of raised imprints.

The two Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hangul Day” sneakers will release exclusively at Nike Korea for ₩139,000 KRW (approximately $120 USD) October 9.

In other footwear news, the Nike Air Force 1 High Boot receives a “Military Green” colorway.
