South Korea’s Kasina, the premier footwear retail hub of the nation, broke out onto the mainstream of sneakers with its Fall 2020 collaboration with Nike and the Dunk Low. Inspired by the Seoul bus transit system, the Kasina Dunk design captured an obscure aspect understood by locals and delivered it to the world through its thoughtful design choice, arriving during the meteoric rise of the Dunk. Now, they’ve got their sights set on another classic Nike shoe enjoying a moment – the Air Max 1.
Through a short and vague series of teasers on Instagram, Kasina hints at two colorways of the Air Max 1 by revealing two color iteratioins of an embroidered flower at the forefoot of the shoes. They’re also looping in this release as part of its own 25th Anniversary as the shop itself was founded back in 1997.
More teasers and first looks at the Kasina x Nike Air Max 1 are sure to follow, so stay tuned.
