Nike and Jerry Lorenzo have officially unveiled the second Fear of God Collection, which is highlighted by the Nike Air Fear of God Raid and the Nike Air Fear of God Moccasin, as well as previewing two vibrant colorways of the Nike Air Fear of God 1.
Jerry Lorenzo saw the Nike Air Raid for the first time as a high school sophomore when a fellow student came into class with it on. The shoe itself was an immediate object of desire. Lorenzo loved the gray and black color scheme, he said, and the nuances of the geometric patterns and the impact of the crossed straps.
As the lead element of the second Nike Air Fear of God release, the Nike Air Fear of God Raid, extends the notion of spirit from the court to the larger cultural milieu around the game. It reminds that the aural and the visual are equally important in defining the tenor of time.
Because of that the Nike Air Raid is a perfect conduit for Lorenzo’s design construct. Giving it new shape and new life doesn’t recreate the past, it gives the present time an object of its own to with which to shepard the tone of this time.
Aside from the footwear, the second drop will also include a double-hooded sweatshirt, new T-shirt, and reprises of the Nike Air Fear of God short and pant.
Look for the Nike Air Fear of God Spring/Summer 2019 Collection to begin releasing on April 27 and into the summer at select retailers and Nike.com.
