Long before he became an internationally recognized fashion designer and founded the streetwear label Fear of God, Jerry Lorenzo was a high school student with an obsession for Air Jordans. And though he couldn’t imagine that another Nike sneaker would ever rival the Jordan in his estimation, Lorenzo was absolutely blown away when a fellow student in his sophomore class strode into the room on pair of Air Raids. As he recalls, “It was like, oh my God, what is that?”
So it must be a dream come true for Lorenzo to collaborate with Nike to release his very own version of the Air Raid. For his Nike Air Fear of God Raid, Lorenzo remained true to the spirit of the original Air Raid that had made such a profound impression on him during his formative years. He did, however, create a far slimmer silhouette for his Air Raid and, of course, attach his exclusive Fear of God last.
