The Nike Air Fear of God Raid - .@Nike


The Nike Air Fear of God Raid

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. He noted there was a positive, pro-Black feeling about it. It was the first Nike shoe outside of Jordan he had an emotional connection to.

"When the kid walked in the classroom with the Air Raid, no one told me that I was supposed to like the Air Raid. I was just drawn to it, the design, the colors. It was like, oh my God, what is that?" Lorenzo recalls. "It became interconnected with all these other real emotional things that were happening at the time of the shoe."

The second drop of Nike Air Fear of God follows Lorenzo's desire to honor Nike's historically strong design language through modern shape and proportion. Highlighted by the Nike Air Fear of God Raid, the release also includes the Nike Air Fear of God Moc, a double-hooded sweatshirt, new T-shirt, and reprises of the Nike Air Fear of God short and pant. 

The Nike Air Fear of God Spring/Summer 2019 collection launches April 27.
