Kasina started out as a skate shop in Busan and has evolved into a premium sneaker store over the years. First opened in 1997, the store currently carries a variety of streetwear and skate brands including Nike SB, HUF, and Staple.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Kasina has teamed up with Converse to create two unique sneakers. Based on the images above, it looks like both models will feature black leather paired with white accents and midsole. Other details include a bright red Converse star logo along with the year “1997” on its heels, as an homage to Kasina’s founding year.
In addition, both sneakers will also feature Korean Hanja lettering on its heel. Sources also report that the Hanja characters translate to “Kasina” and the store’s founding year.
