Over the last three decades, the Air Jordan 1 has gone from the hardwood to the streets.
Similarly, the shoe has transcended from the city of Chicago to every corner of the world thanks to the global dominance of the brand and sneakers as a cultural phenomena.
This custom Air Jordan 1 “Seoul” pays homage to the epicenter of culture, fashion and much more in South Korea.
The shoe was constructed with premium Italian leathers designed with the color blocking scheme to recreate the Korean flag.
In addition to that, laser etched tongue tags honor the Korean flag while also containing sentimental words as the artist David Garcia created this pair for his friend. The inner tongues contain the messages “For my brother” on the right and “For my best friend” on the left respectively.
Take a look at the detail of the shoe below, and make sure to follow the artist on IG here for more high-quality customs.
