The second pair in the Kasina x Nike Air Max 1 “Wonang” Pack has been unveiled.
Mandarin ducks may mate for life. With this being the inspiration behind Kasina’s latest Nike collab, we get two unique Air Max 1 colorways. This muted colorway, an homage to the female mandarin duck, further realizes the “Better Together” theme that Kasina is pushing with this collaboration. It also pairs perfectly with its more colorful, male counterpart.
A thick, hairy grey suede mudguard runs along with the midsole of the shoe, as the darker toned navy leather is tumbled to luxurious levels. The feathered quarter panel is a darker shade of grey, as is the sail leather, with a contrasting Nike Swoosh. Dark Grey tumbled leather on the heel features an intricate stitched female mandarin duck design, similar to its male counterpart. The ankle collar adds yet another texture to the upper as the slightly shorter-haired navy suede on the collar meets the smooth, sail-colored leather inner liner. The same flower motif for the mini Swoosh on the toe of the male pair is used again for the female pair, while the wooden, laser engraved lace dubrae sits prominently against the white laces and navy tongue. A transparent blue outsole reveals the mandarin duck design against a pink background, with “Nike Air” on the right outsole and Kasina in Korean on the left.
The Kasina x Nike Air Max 1 Won-Ang Grey will see a limited release via Kasina on June 4th, 2022 and worldwide on June 8th. Retailing for $160 in men's sizes, they will be available at select retailers, both online and in-store. Keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
