- The collaboration follows the recent news of G-Dragon’s solo comeback as confirmed by his agency YG Entertainment.
Seoul-born worldwide hip-hop phenomenon G-Dragon and Nike will partner up again to release a new Nike Air Force 1 “Para-noise” sneaker.
A year after his first collaboration with the brand, the artist is set to release the same style and character in a white colorway.
“Even though everything is uncertain these days, we shouldn’t stop expressing ourselves as the way we are, and creating our own world,” says G-Dragon. “With these footsteps being connected, we will find our utopia spreading in front of our eyes. I dream of every one of you expressing yourselves freely in the Youtopia that you create for yourselves.”
An ode to the artist’s “self-actualization,” the new sneaker echoes the singer-songwriter’s personal aesthetic and features a white painted overlay designed to gradually wear away over time to expose a personal artwork created by the artist himself. The design includes additional embellishments in the form of an embroidered daisy on the tongue and custom removable pins in the upper eyelets.
Along with Nike’s official announcement, G-Dragon took to Instagram to tease the upcoming release with a series of pictures.
