As an Asian American man, people will often ask me “Where are you from?” When I reply, “Korea”, the question I invariably get asked, after a solemn look, is “Which one?”. I guess they think if I’m from the North (I’m not), they’ll need to keep an extra eye on me, just in case I have a nuclear weapon in my pocket. Well, this upcoming pack from the good folks at Reebok leaves no room for question as to which Korea it’s repping, as 3 of the 4 shoes feature the colors that make up the South Korean flag (black, red, and blue).
The pack features a Black, Red, Blue, and Baby Blue version, all of which feature suede and mesh uppers, atop a white and grey outsole accented with each particular shoe’s main color. Reebok has brought us a plethora of dope releases to commemorate the Classic Leather’s 30 Year Anniversary (Packer Shoes’ “Aztec”, Burn Rubber’s “Spirit of Detroit”, and Solebox’s recently released “Sturnella Militaris”, just to name a few), and they don’t look to be slowing any time soon, as this simple-yet-colorful collection is one definitely worth checking out (Korean or not).
No information yet on when this pack will be releasing, but keep it locked at your top source for sneaker news, SneakerFiles.com, as we’ll be sure to keep you updated as info hits the streets. Let us know what you think about this collection below, and peep pics of the collection after the jump.
