Fear of God ESSENTIALS x Converse Skidgrip Release Date

Converse announces that 110 years after its introduction, the Converse Skidgrip is back with a high-top collaboration from Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God (FOG) ESSENTIALS.

Emotion is the core of the Skidgrip’s return. The detailing – a combined effort between Converse and Lorenzo – serves to add a new chapter to the Skidgrip’s legacy. With modern modifications in form, this under-the-radar classic affirms its effortless stance and underscores the shoe’s historic cool factor.

“The sole is the biggest takeaway when you look at the sneaker,” says Lorenzo. “It feels very much like our main line, the Fear of God 101, and gives it the same feeling looking down as looking down at the Skidgrip in the late ’80s.”

The assured stance allows the upper to shine afresh, with a more contemporary height and sleeker shape. Lorenzo’s take – co-branded between Converse and FOG ESSENTIALS – reprises those ’87 graphics, and with it an unmistakable pop that brings energy to any essential outfit.

“Everything we’ve tried to do starts from a place of honesty. We picked the Skidgrip because it was a shoe that I loved when I was younger. Our aim in bringing back a silhouette that has been perhaps overlooked is to bring it a fresh relevance,” says Lorenzo.
