UPCOMING: G-DRAGON x Nike Air Force 1 ‘Para-noise’
First it was the AF1 Shadown. Then it was Travis Scott and the AF1 Gore-Tex. Now it’s G-DRAGON.
As we continue the barrage of Air Force 1 releases this season, Nike Sportswear turns their focus on Seoul hip-hop star G-DRAGON. Growing up, he found the AF1 as one of his all-time grails, as he couldn’t afford them and would only admire them from afar.
Now that’s he’s a global phenomenon, G-DRAGON worked with Nike to create the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Para-noise’. The shoe features a unique black painted upper that wears away over time to feature an artwork created by the man himself. The artwork conveys a sense of optimism, inspired by his vision of world where the youth are unified through creativity and an exchange of ideas.
“I was made by a culture derived by people from the past,” he says.
Paint marks are seen on the midsoles, while a daisy is embroidered on the tongue to go with the removable custom pins found on the upper eyelets. The Nike Air Force 1 ‘Para-noise’ drops this Saturday, November 23rd at nike.com, Commonwealth, and Titan. The shoe retails for Php 9,895 and keep track across the aforementioned retailers for their release mechanics.
