The Popularity of G-Dragon PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Para-noise’

As covered in a previous article on the popularity of G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Para-noise,’ the impact of the sneaker was paramount, with the coveted shoe selling out in a matter of hours upon its initial release. Labeled as “a collective progressive outlook centered around creativity,” the shoe retailed for about US$187 and has reached a resale value for US$3,000. 

The rapper, song-songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer from South Korea is widely known as the King of K-Pop, and now with his latest Nike collab as a sneaker enthusiast and designer.  The original black sneaker paint is meant to slowly wear away over time, eventually revealing artwork created by the artist himself. The sneaker’s tongue features G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE daisy logo, playing to the memorable brand name of the series. 

G-Dragon as a Fashion Icon

While G-Dragon’s fashion sense has arguably been categorized as unisex, this ability to blend in with any style, colour, and aesthetic look has garnered him the status of a pop fashion icon. 

Before officially collaborating with Nike, G-Dragon was associated with many luxury, top-level brands, getting endorsements from major department stores like Shinsegae to Hyundai. The k-pop star was also Asia’s first GIVENCHY muse and is stated to be the only Korean to be CHANEL’s muse and Global Ambassador.

Following the massive success of the first shoe and upon his recent release from the military, G-Dragon is set to release the PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 ‘Para-noise 2.0.’ While the first version came with a black painted top and black accents on the white midsole, the Para-Noise 2.0 comes in an inverted colour scheme.

The shoe is made out of premium upper leather covered in white paint. The paint peels away to reveal a base featuring original artwork by the artist himself, no different to the previous Para-noise 1.
