Footwear giant Nike announced its latest collaboration with Korean superstar Kwon Ji-yong, more popularly known as G-Dragon.

The leader of the Korean group Big Bang posted a teaser of the collaboration on his personal Instagram page on November 1, just a few days after he was discharged from military service.

According to Nike, the Air Force 1 "Para-noise" has a "unique upper fabrication that features a black painted overlay designed to slowly wear away over time to reveal a personal artwork created by G-Dragon."

Photos posted by G-Dragon show a black Air Force 1 with a daisy embroidered on the tongue and G-Dragon's PEACEMINUSONE imprint.

The Nike Air Force 1 Para-noise will be released globally on November 23.
