Nike and Korean streetwear brand PEACEMINUSONE, founded by G-Dragon, are no strangers. The pair previously worked on two iterations of Air Force 1s and the first PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Kwondo 1 was dropped late last year.
Now, the fashion-forward brand is banding together with Nike again to remake the Kwondo 1 in “Panda” (or “White/Black”) colors. The PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Kwondo 1 was built as an extension of G-Dragon’s contemporary style, right down to the name of the model. “Kwondo” is an amalgamation of taekwondo, Kwon Ji-young (G-dragon’s legal name), and Nike’s “Just Do It” slogan.
