G-Dragon and Nike reportedly have another Nike Air Force 1 collaboration in the works.
According to sneaker leaker account @py_rates_, the K-pop star and the athletic giant are set to drop the Peaceminusone Air Force 1 in a new white/black/white colorway for holiday 2020 with a $200 price tag. Unfortunately for fans, no image of the sneaker is available at this time, although @py_rates_ created a mockup that offers an idea of what the shoe could look like, applying a white overlay on top of the original all-black silhouette.

*LEAK ALERT*: @Nike x @xxxibgdrgn will be dropping another Air Force 1 later this year. The PEACEMINUSONE AF1 will be dropping in a WHITE/BLACK/WHITE colourway, retailing for $200. Check out our illustration above of what the shoe could look like – We'd like to make it clear we have just used the OG model as the base, there is every chance this could be a completely new version. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
G-Dragon’s first Nike Air Force 1 “Para-Noise” sneaker made its debut in November 2019 with a $200 price tag. The shoe features a hand-painted black upper, with G-Dragon’s Peaceminusone daisy logo appliquéd on the tongue and a colorful tie-dyed insole. The kicks quickly sold out, but they’re still available to nab on the resale market. On StockX.com, the shoes are trading for between $509 and $687 over time.
Often called the “king of K-pop,” G-Dragon is no stranger to the fashion world. The star has for years been a front-row fixture at runway shows. He also has collaborated with other major players in the shoe space, namely Giuseppe Zanotti and Ambush. What’s more, he was tapped by Karl Lagerfeld to serve as a Chanel brand ambassador in 2016.
Launched in the ’80s as a basketball sneaker, the Air Force 1 has become a coveted lifestyle shoe for celebrities and sneakerheads alike — and it has been a canvas for many Nike collaborators in addition to G-Dragon. For instance, Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, rapper Travis Scott and ex-NFL star Colin Kaepernick have all put their own spins on the classic kick.
