Gear Up for Rugged Climates with Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hangul Day” and GORE-TEX Innovation!

Nike has a long history in Korea, most recently manifesting itself in the form of innovative retail
concepts like Nike Rise and Nike Style in the Hongdae district. The Beaverton business is creating a
weather-resistant homage to the 15th-century invention of the Korean alphabet in honor of Hangul Day,
which is observed in early October.

The Air Force 1’s low-top trim now features the prominent “Light Orewood Brown” treatment from the
Tinker Hatfield design that was first debuted on the Air Max 1 in late August. The collection’s signature
tan hue, which has been cured in soft tumbled leather, consumes the upper overlays and profile
swooshes while creating a clad composition around the ballistic mesh tongue.

While stamping the lateral heel and tongue tab with the material’s name, water-resistant Gore-Tex tooling is visible under the base layer of clean white mesh. Emblazoned Hangul Day insignias are stamped on the heel tab and insoles, while a midsole made of cream and a traditional gum tread combine for a nostalgic undertone. While we wait for the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hangul Day” to come in the coming weeks, take a closer look at the shoe below.
