[Update 6 Jul 2023] POST ARCHIVE FACTION is reported to be organizing a pop-up store at the Yeongdeungpo area in Seoul in August. It remains to see if the POST ARCHIVE FACTION x On Running collection presented at Paris Fashion Week will be showcased at this pop-up.

[Update 21 Jun 2023] More detailed images of the POST ARCHIVE FACTION x On Running collection have just been shared by @hikingpatrol. Enjoy a look at the monochrome pairs of Cloudmonsters and the rest of the Spring/Summer 2024 collection at the gallery above! We’ll keep you updated here when new information surfaces.
POST ARCHIVE FACTION published a series of lookbook images for its latest collection “POST ARCHIVE FACTION (PAF) 6.0”, and eagle-eyed fans quickly spotted a possible collaboration with running shoe brand On Running on the feet of the models.
Launched in 2018, the young fashion label from South Korea gained traction with its futuristic technical apparel featuring asymmetrical cuts. For its latest collection, PAF continues to blend inventive construction with modern day fabrics.
In the footwear department, it looks like PAF has tapped On, the Swiss running shoe brand famous for its CloudTec cushioning system. Models are seen wearing a white and a black pair of On shoes with On’s zigzag CloudTec sole unit underfoot.
For this first ever POST ARCHIVE FACTION x On Running collab, the two brands have chosen to reimagine the On Cloudmonster—one of On’s latest running super shoe. Whilst the signature CloudTec cushioning has been kept unchanged, POST ARCHIVE FACTION touches can be felt via the asymmetrical TPU-like upper, while On’s branding can be seen on the toe box.
Neither brand has yet to confirm the collaboration, so keep your eyes peeled for this POST ARCHIVE FACTION x On collab.
