UPDATE: We recently released early images of Nike’s new Air Fear of God 1 “String” colorway with the release date of February 10. It seems as though they will be getting pushed back to a later date unfortunately. Breaking from the single-color style offered by most of Lorenzo’s past Nike releases, the “String” combines a black ballistic mesh collar and midfoot with a supple sandy suede toebox and a jagged plastic support cage. More tan tones are present on the midsole, and double-stacked icy blue Zoom Air units in the heel provide basketball-inspired cushioning.
Check back for more info on the new release date.
ORIGINAL STORY: It seems like the partnership between Nike and Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God brand is still going strong as new photos of the Air Fear of God 1 ‘String’ have just surfaced. The pics come courtesy of the Instagram account of @upcycle.sneaks and we can now see the details up close.
These “cream toes,” as Jerry calls them, are constructed of a breathable mesh upper in black, surrounded by a cream colored TPU cage and cream toe box. Branding is shared by the two companies as we see A black mini Swoosh on the cage, embossed Fear of God print on the midsole and the Nike logo on the heel. The icy blue air unit comes equipped inside the raised Zoom Air sole unit with tonal black laces rounding out the pair.
Release date: February 10
Estimated price: $350
