Following a few teasers, G-Dragon and Nike officially announce the release of the PEACEMINUSONE x Nike KWONDO1.
The name KWONDO1 (sometimes stylized as KIIIONDO) was derived from the harmony of taekwondo, Korea’s national sport, together with G-Dragon’s real name (Kwon Ji-yong) and the Nike slogan “Just Do It.” Just like its name, the shoe’s design derives its inspiration from a combination of sport and culture to create something new that transcends boundaries.
The white leather upper is covered in brogue detailing and comes with a wingtip toe overlay, typical of formal Oxfords and traditional golf shoes. Removable lace coverings, pulled from soccer footwear such as the Nike Tiempo, come with PEACEMINUSONE and Nike Swoosh branding. A daisy flower symbol, commonly used by the king of K-pop’s fashion label, is found on the heel and the outsoles. The all-white colorway serves as a blank canvas that can be paired with any outfit. There is also a F&F version limited to 111 units that features added pops of color on the Swooshes and a yellowed midsole (gifted to the likes of Kim Min-jun, KB Lee, and Hiroshi Fujiwara).
“I want to feel free with the way I wear and style clothes, in addition to everything else that I do,” says G-Dragon. “I hope that people can overcome stereotypes and feel free in their own way by wearing the Kwondo 1.”
The PEACEMINUSONE x Nike KWONDO1 launches globally on December 3rd on SNKRS and at select retailers. Check out the “Freedom in Flow” campaign imagery below.
