Drawing inspiration from the rural south, Jerry Lorenzo puts an Americana spin on a duo of sporting silhouettes - register on END. Launches now
Pared back with a minimalist frame of mind, Jerry Lorenzo's Fear of God and sportswear giants Nike showcase their combined talents with the Air 1 x Fear of God capsule. Constructed with military precision, American designer Lorenzo presents an interpretation of the classic 1993 Air Raid sneaker and a fresh 'Strap' silhouette, fusing sporting aesthetics with an overarching passion and inspiration drawn from the American wilderness.
Inspired by the rolling plains and the dusty mesas of the American south, these "Light Bone" sneakers are instilled with an impression of Americana, old and new. Fusing this visceral sensibility of the natural world with a twist of technical detailing, Lorenzo brings his unique perspective to the fold.
A style first admired by Lorenzo in his youth, the Air Raid is locked-in with a duo of cross-cut straps and a toggle lacing system, while subtly worn leathers set up the base in vintage white. Nike’s midnight Swoosh contrasts the look perfectly, while Lorenzo’s cushioning of choice – Zoom Air – continues to manifest underfoot; proving responsive and lightweight with a game-winning touch every time. Drawing inspiration from a Native American moccasin, the 'Strap' sneaker offers a further twist on a classic sporting sneaker aesthetic, updated with ripstop nylon, a cross-foot strap and Zoom Air cushioning for a further boost of comfort, precision and support.
The Nike Air 1 x Fear of God SS19 footwear collection is available now for registration at END. Launches.
