Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear Of God is certainly in demand these days. The buzzy label’s Nike Air Fear Of God 1, Nike Air Fear Of God Shoot Around, Fear Of God Moccasin, and Fear Of God Nike Skylon 2 collaborations have drawn rave reviews from the majority of the sneaker-loving world, pushing Lorenzo’s Swoosh Brand footwear to the cusp of a rare collaborative space also occupied by highly regarded names like Virgil Abloh and Jun Takahashi. And Lorenzo’s not settling for a trifecta of original basketball-inspired silhouettes either. He’s got a fourth on the way — the Nike Air Fear Of God 180.
Although the name seems to draw from the Air Force 180 — a Nike hoops classic worn by Charles Barkley — the silhouette is all another classic Nike hoops shoe in its inspiration: 1992’s Air Raid. Borrowing both the Air Raid’s crossed straps and the mid/high cut, the Air FOG 180 also adds luxe touches via a buttery-soft “Light Bone” leather/mesh upper, contrasted with a black pebbled leather Swoosh. The look is then completed by a white midsole that features the same high-stacked heel Zoom Air unit as Lorenzo’s other models and special tonal embossed FOG detailing. Check out images of Lorenzo’s latest basketball-inspired creation below, and stay tuned for updates on a release date as they’re available.
