Nike and Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo join forces to bring the Nike Air Fear Of God 1 which features a boot-like construction with a cage lacing system. Two colorways are due to drop this weekend, the “Light Bone” and “Black”.
Jerry Lorenzo, Fear of God
Born on October 5, 1976, Jerry Lorenzo was brought up in a religious household and read devotions with his family every day. Today, he is a luxury streetwear fashion designer and the owner of Fear of God. His brand attracts the likes of many celebrities including Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Kendall Jenner. Now, he’s garnered the attention of major sneaker brand, Nike.
Nike Fear of God 1
With military boot aesthetics, the Nike Air Fear of God 1 is simple yet tactical. Unlike most collaborations these days, this one doesn’t scream branding. You will only find a small Swoosh on the lateral and simple Fear of God branding near the icy Air unit. In addition to the Nike Air logo on the heel and Fear of God written on the back of the mid-sole. There are no crazy or questionable designs, images, writings, or stitching. The silhouette is simple, straight to the point, and can go well with your entire wardrobe, just as Lorenzo intended.
This weekend, Nike Basketball will also be releasing a toned down version of the Nike FOG 1, “Shoot Around”. This iteration ditches the caging system for a simpler upper with a unique lacing system. You can see a large Swoosh on the lateral and a smaller one on the toe box.
Air Fear of God Upcoming Colorways
The silhouette also debuted in a bright yellow colorway. According to sneaker leaker @py_rates, more colorways are set to be dropping in Spring/Summer 2019. They include an “Orange Pulse,” “Frosted Spruce,” and “Sail/Black” colorways. They will also retail for $395 USD.
The sneaker-boots release on Saturday, December 15, 2018 for $395 each. With a retail price that’s similar to aftermarket prices, you better bet their resale price is going to be high. According to StockX, the Light Bone colorway is selling for an average of $1,469 USD; the Black one for $1,213 USD.
The Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Shoot Around” will also drop on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at a retail price of $300 USD. Dropping alongside it is the entire Fear of God x Nike Basketball collection and of course the “Light Bone” and “Black” colorways.
Rumors are these kicks will be dropping on many sites including FearOfGod, DSM, Xhibition, & ExtraButter – all of which are supported by NSB.
