BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon (Kwon Jiyong) has been keeping all his fans and sneakerheads on the edges of their seats while teasing his upcoming new shoe collaboration with Nike.
This isn’t G-Dragon’s first time working with Nike to release a shoe. G-Dragon’s very own Korean clothing brand PEACEMINUSONE released the first Air Force 1 Para-Noise shoe in 2019 and then went on to release the Para-Noise 2.0‘s in November of 2020.
The Para-Noise’s were G-Dragon’s unique take on the classic Nike Air Force 1 sneaker, and was a popular hit as both drops sold out worldwide in a matter of minutes. Now, we have another look into his next shoe drop!
Nike x PEACEMINUSONE’s next shoe will be called the Kwondo 1 and is set to release January 2022 for a retail price of $180 USD. G-Dragon has put his unique flair on all his shoe designs like paint strokes and the daisy flower. The Kwondo 1 is also set to have the iconic daisy detailing as well as stitching that truly make the shoe one of a kind.
Highsnobiety describes the shoe as “unlike anything within the Nike arsenal, the Kwondo 1 is essentially what you’d get if you mixed a skate shoe and a brogue.”
G-Dragon has been teasing his followers on Instagram about the newest shoe drop and has released official images of the Kwondo 1 this morning.
Take a look below for the latest images of the Kwondo 1!
For those of you who are going to try for the Kwondo 1’s, good luck! Judging by the quick sell out of his previous drops, we expect nothing less from the rapper turned fashion icon!
