Although fans were initially enamored by the special black coating on the low cut AF1, as more people get their hands on the shoe we are now getting to see G-Dragon’s personal artwork emblazoned on the premium leather upper underneath. The hidden artwork is inspired by G-Dragon’s sense of optimism towards art as a form of self-expression for youth around the world to be unified through collective creativity.
Other decorations found on the upper include contrast white Swoosh branding, embroidered daisy motifs at the tongue, branded thick laces and removable custom pins in the upper eyelets. Elevating the shoe is a PEACEMINUSONE marked white lining, printed insoles and an AF1 sole unit dressed all over with haphazardly applied strokes of black paint. Additionally, the collaborative sneaker comes with custom packaging marked with the same daisy graffiti artwork hidden on the upper.
Priced at $200 USD, G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 “Para-Noise” is set to release globally November 23.
