SNEAKER RELEASES | Peaceminusone x Nike Air Force 1 '07 Parra-noise | November 23
by Justyne Allen·
When two massive names in the fashion industry get together, we know something glorious is about to happen. One of the most coveted collabs of 2019 will be hitting Sole Finess on November 23rd, PEACEMINUSONE’s ‘Para-noise’ is an Air Force 1 in a way that’s never been done before.
PEACEMINUSONE is the creative brainchild of K-Pop idol turned fashion icon; G-Dragon (Kwon Ji-Yong), first launching the label in 2016. Seeing international fame with his group (Big Bang) and his solo ventures, G-Dragon had always been passionate about music and fashion. His interest in Nike started back when he was just a kid who was into Hip-Hop, acknowledging the Air Force 1 as integral to the culture.
Acting as an outlet for his other interests, art and fashion, PEACEMINUSONE has become a hit in the fashion world, harbouring a growing number of collaborations with established brands such as Fragment, Ambush, Vogue Apparel and Collette. Now PEACEMINUSONE can add Nike to the list of collaborations with this upcoming Air Force 1 ’07.
The Air Force 1 has been the go-to silhouette turned canvas for creatives looking to customise their kicks, and G-Dragon takes the model on with his own artistic twist. From first glance, the most noticeable thing is the alternative lacing, going down the shoe instead of up, with a chunkier lace than the average Air Force 1. The longer you look at the sneaker, more details start to make an appearance like the embroidered trademark daisy logo on the tongue, PEACEMINUSONE logo on the interior sockliner and removable pins in the upper lace holes.
The deep black upper contrasts heavily against the tumbled leather white Swoosh and white midsole, completed with a black paint smear hinting to the custom nature of this Air Force 1 and G-Dragon’s creative process behind the sneaker. However the details still don’t stop there, with the PEACEMINUSONE brand stating that over time, the heavy black layer will slowly reveal personal art created by G-Dragon himself.
This sneaker collab bridges the gap between fashion and art and has potential to shake up the average sneaker collaboration in the future. The concept of this sneaker alone definitely makes this a pair you need to get your hands on!
