G-DRAGON has only been discharged from the military for about a week now, and he’s already working on a new project.
Today, November 4, he officially announced a collaboration with Nike on a pair of sneakers, the fashion brand’s staple model – the Nike Air Force 1.
Known for his exquisite fashion sense, the rapper naturally gave this model a bit of his own unique flair. The sneakers are embellished with a daisy embroidery and a few custom pins.
Reflecting on his relationship with the sneakers as a child, G-DRAGON has said:
Ever since I came across hip-hop as a kid, AF1 has had a meaning greater than just shoes. 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.
Congratulations to G-DRAGON on this amazing project!
