Hankook Tire Partners with Pro-Specs to Release Running Shoes


SEOUL, April 28 (Korea Bizwire)South Korean tiremaker Hankook Tire & Technology Co. said Thursday it has partnered with sport fashion brand, Pro-Specs, to launch three limited edition pairs of running shoes.

The iON evo, Hankook Tire’s high-end tire designed for electric vehicles, inspired the patterns on the shoe’s outsole, which enhance its anti-slip capabilities.

Furthermore, rubber compounds used in tire production were also utilized to create the outsole, resulting in a more robust grip.


This marks the second collaboration between Hankook Tire and Pro-Specs.

Last year, they jointly released a running shoe that features the Kinergy 4S2′s thread pattern, an all-weather tire from Hankook Tire, to maximize the shoe’s functionality.
