Founded in 1997 by former pro skateboarder EunHyuk Lee, Kasina is renowned as a catalyst for street fashion in South Korea. Collaborating with Nike on the Dunk, Kasina relays its story — from humble beginnings in Busan, South Korea’s second-largest city, to opening multiple doors in the country’s capital megalopolis, Seoul. The two colorways of the Dunk Kasina both reference travel through Korea. The Neptune Green colorway explicitly pulls from the signage that lines the Gyeongbu Expressway, the main highway between Busan and Seoul. During the mid-’80s, the same period the Dunk was introduced, Seoul experienced a population boom. This growth, symbolized by travel across Korea’s highways, underpins the Kasina journey. “Busan” and “Seoul” are written on the left and right heel tabs respectively.
