Spot Nike's Dunk Low "Seoul" on the Streets of South Korea

We ask people in the Korean capital about their thoughts on the special release.

Earlier today, Nike dropped the “Seoul” iteration of its Dunk Low exclusively in South Korea. Celebrating the much-anticipated release, HYPEBAE KR and HYPEBEAST KR took to the streets, capturing the kicks on the Korean capital’s citizens.

As revealed previously, the sneakers don a white leather base on the upper, which is contrasted with overlays in colors found on South Korea’s national flag, the Taegukgi. The Swooshes are dressed in red and blue, while the mudguards, eyestays and heels arrive in black. Rounding out the design are the asymmetrical outsoles in red and blue.

This editorial spotlights much-loved regions in Seoul. Our editors headed to Euljiro’s shopping complex Seun Sangga to meet a truck driver, who described the Dunk Low as “sneakers [his] son would beg [his] mom to buy him 20 years ago.” One high schooler self-shot images in a photo studio in the Hongdae district, while a tailor in Myeongdong commented, “These shoes are so light and good-looking. I’m sure young people have already set up tents to get their hands on these.”

Explore the full editorial shot in Seoul, South Korea, above.
