Like any sneakerhead, G-Dragon grew up ogling at sneakers. Not being able to afford them pre-fame meant that he could only love sneakers from afar.
“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-colored AF1s was the uniform.”
That’s all in the past now. The G-Dragon x Nike Air Force 1 “Para-noise” reflects G-Dragon’s blossoming into a worldwide style icon from Korean pop star. The sneaker comes with a unique upper fabrication that features a black painted overlay designed to slowly wear away over time to reveal a personal artwork created by G-Dragon.
The artwork conveys a sense of optimism, inspired by the singer-songwriter’s vision of a world where the youth are unified through creativity and a free exchange of ideas.
