Earlier this year, Nike unveiled and released the kits that they designed for the South Korea national soccer teams. The release included apparel and a matching Air Max 95. Two more sneakers have now been unveiled as part of this South Korea collection, an Air Presto and an Air Force 1.

A sacred creature believed to be a guardian animal in Korean mythology, the white tiger symbolizes courage and power. Both the Prestos and AF1s are executed in mostly white composition with black tiger stripes pulled directly from the away kits. Fun fact: All of the stripes in the jersey’s print were originally hand-painted by Nike’s design team.
Translucent hits of red and light blue adorn the cage of the Presto, while the Air Force 1 switches out the red for pink in a mismatched theme. Additionally, the tongues on the Air Force 1s have been adorned with South Korea’s updated white tiger emblem, and the heels of both shoes are stamped with the country’s flag.
Grab an official look at the “South Korea” Air Presto and Air Force 1 below. Both shoes are rolling out soon via select retailers worldwide and Nike.com. A toddler-sized version of the Presto is already on the US Nike website. Stay tuned for updates.
Update (05/09/20): The Air Presto has arrived on US SNKRS. They’ll be available in XS – 4XL sizing on May 15th for a retail price of $130 USD.
