Editor's Notes: G-Dragon, affectionately known as the "King of K-Pop," has received the smart casual memo – and fully understood the assignment.

The influence of G-Dragon shouldn't be overlooked – the artist debuted in 2006 as part of the South Korean K-Pop group, Big Bang, which went on to be one of the top-selling boy bands in the world.

Beyond the music, he's known for his bold style and proximity to the fashion industry, making him a natural choice to collaborate with the world's leading sportswear brand – Nike.

Back in 2019, G-Dragon collaborated with the Swoosh on the Air Force 1 under his creative imprint, PEACEMINUSONE. The silhouette featured shiny black leather, a spray-painted midsole, and an embroidered flower on the tongue.

This unmistakable moniker of the artist returns as a detailing element on the Kwondo 1.


A shoe unlike anything within the Nike arsenal, the Kwondo 1 is essentially what you'd get if you mixed a skate shoe and a brogue. Dressed in a full leather construction, the sneaker features broguing at the toe and heel, as well as a co-branded fringe tongue. For this partnership, the floral logo sits at the heel, giving each stride a floral pop.

The sneaker first appeared in triple white, which is set to be the general release colorway. An additional friends and family colorway with vintage-washed soles and colorful Swooshes has also surfaced. Look for the GR pair to drop today at Nike SNKRS and select retailers.
