To welcome Hangeul Day (9th), 2021Sneakers launched two "Air Force No. 1 Low Cut" commemorative costumes printed with Korean embroidery and traditional colors. The first sneaker was a black leather upper with Korean alphabet patterns on the toe and sides. The five colors on this sneaker are dotted with geometric text and clearly displayed on the stripes on the heel counter. This is the traditional Korean color system. Gradient contrast stitching finds the outline Nike Swoosh and midsole, and additional gradient tones decorate the tongue label brand. Below, a black midsole and white rubber outsole complete the look. The second "Korean Day" sneaker is a design language for women. The differences include the basic color conversion from black to cream, and the use of Korean embroidery instead of embossing.
New Release Yeezy has a series of special footwear products, one of which is the EQT series first launched in 1991. Now, Sandaogang has been in existence for 30 years. To celebrate its anniversary, Sandaogang has teamed up with a number of retailers. The next one is Europe's own Overkill, which has already cooperated with Adidas equipment CSG 91. For this cosmetic, the German retailer wanted to pay tribute to the first-generation Adidas EQT shoes and added its own soft style to its iconic tricolor. Neutral tones have the strongest presence in this collaborative iteration, as a pure white coat covering the toe box, grid quarter panel, fender, tongue and collar, while "Gray One" polishes the covering. Red, blue, and green are intertwined, highlighting the stripes, tape and Adidas logo on the tongue and left heel. Parked behind the shoe on the right is Overkill's signature emblem. Another small element that needs to be pointed out here is the addition of a set of stripes in the middle of the sole to match the bottom.

In addition, the footwear product has a red Dr. Martens AirWair heel loop, a black Herschel label, and is finished with a yellow welt stitch signed by Dr. Martens. At the top of the collaboration are co-branded insoles and custom boxes, which feature Herschel Supply’s iconic red and navy brands. Recently, Dr. Martens collaborated with Haven to design the 1461 silhouette. The all-black product is characterized by a mixed-material upper, using calf and full-grain leather from C.F. Stead.
