Nike Air Force 1 '07 / Para-Noise





Korean pop star, G-DRAGON has dedicated his life to being the catalyst that prompts the "step" that unifies us all.

The Air Force 1 G-DRAGON reflects this ethos with paint layer that wears away to reveal an art piece inspired by his vision of a world where the lines between reality and utopia are blurred.

He's starting with the youth of Seoul, Korea—encouraging them to create and exchange ideas freely. He believes that once the youth are unified through creativity, they can establish the culture that ultimately gives birth to an artistic utopia.

G-DRAGON, the Seoul-born hip-hop star, didn't always have easy access to his favorite sneakers, the Nike Air Force 1.

"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."
Progressing as a performer and blossoming into a worldwide phenomenon, G-DRAGON has made the Air Force 1 an integral part of his uniform. The Nike Air Force 1 "Para-noise" reflects this overtly 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. For G-DRAGON, art is an important expression of self that pushes culture forward.

"I was made by a culture derived by people from the past," he says.
Additional embellishments include a daisy embroidered on the tongue and removable custom pins in the upper eyelets.
