"AirForce 1" Plamodel Kit from Coolrain x NIKE

Folks online might have been seeing a slew of images of this "AirForce 1" Plamodel Kit from South Korean creator Coolrain, whereby a 1/6th-scaled sneaker that could be assembled (*like an air-fix-kit), and folks have been painting and customising them! Featured here in this post are a few examples :)

Alas, the kit is NOT (necessarily) for sale, as they were created for AF1 campaign for NIKE Korea! Folks had been customising them for a "AF1 Battle Force Seoul" event, with more info via @battleforceseoul. As well they had been sent to select folks for promotional purposes and perhaps we will be seeing more customs to come outside of Korea?

Do check out the video interview with Coolrain (featured below in Korean language, and do remember to switch on the English subtitles!) - where the creator talks about the genesis of his creation, and we get to have a look at his customs!

Check out the written interview "FORCE BY ME COOLRAIN" (In Korean text).

What first clued me into Coolrain were his hand-made 1/6th-sneakers, since even before my first blogpost in 2006 (!!!), or you could make your own, thanks to Coolrain!
