G-Dragon has teamed up with Nike to create an exclusive Air Force 1 sneakers—the PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 “Para-noise”—will be launched on November 23 exclusively at Dover Street Market Singapore.
“Ever since I came across hip-hop as a kid, AF1 has had a meaning greater than just shoes,” says G-Dragon. “I couldn’t afford them, so I would always pass the Nike store and admire them with my eyes and heart only. For those who loved hip-hop culture, oversized clothes, hats and matching coloured AF1s was the uniform.”

G-Dragon has made the Air Force 1 as part of his uniform when performing and it was a natural progression for him to create his own version with the sportswear giant. Amassing a huge fan base not just in South Korea but globally, G-Dragon was recently discharged from his compulsory military duties and was greeted by more than 3,000 fans during his return.
“Now that I am no longer a soldier, I will now return to my career as a singer and give my best efforts,” G-Dragon said while addressing his fans, as he was seen wiping away tears at one point.
