The design is relatively straightforward, with a white and orange colorblocking scheme accented by small hits of kelly green and an off-white midsole. However, there’s a fabric pull tab on the heel that nods to the tent covers, a transparent plastic tongue tag that acknowledges the plastic-bottled beverages served in the carts and special Nike graphics on the heel that call to the delicious wares cooked up on the carts’ grills like rice cake skewers and fish cakes. Individuals who are lucky enough to score a pair will also be given a storage container and large beach towel with SNKRS branding.
Nike, of course, is no stranger to commemorating Korean culture with exclusive sneaker drops. Kasina’s co-created Air Max 1 nodded to Mandarian ducks — a popular wedding gift — 2021’s Dunk Low “Korea” saluted the colors of the country’s flag, and the Air Jordan 3 “Seoul” was one of Jordan Brand’s most exclusive drops of 2018, to name a few.
Expect these delicious Air Force 1s to begin rolling out via SNKRS Exclusive Access on September 25. The SNKRS Korea page notes that those who are active on the app between September 9th and September 21st stand a better chance at scoring a pair.
