Asia has been a huge market for Nike and Jordan Brand over the years, as Japan, China, the Philippines, and South Korea all have developed their own respective sneaker games over the years. South Korea just held Sole Exposition, a sneaker-showcase event that was held on the third floor of Nike’s flagship store in Incheon, South Korea. A great collection of Nike Zoom Kobes, Nike Zoom/Air Max LeBrons, Air Force 1s, and Air Jordans were out for viewing, like a great collection of the Air Jordan X City Series, some deadstock heat (Military IV, Grape V), and other great memorabilia. Perhaps the only thing outshining the kicks were the figurines! A great set-up of NBA ballers like Jordan, Kobe, Vince Carter, KG, AI, and more were displayed, but what stole the show was an Eminem figurine in which the mini-Marshall wore a pair of the Air Jordan XI Concord. See how South Korea gets down with kicks by checking out the huge gallery after the jump, and let us know what impressed you the most. via itsshoestime.
