Fear of God and his collaborations have become very popular, as the collaboration with Nike is about to be released we discover a new silhouette inspired by this famous capsule and the basketball universe with this Nike Air Fear of God Shoot Around.
Jerry Lorenzo himself explains the origins of this project, motivated by the idea of focusing on the emotional aspect of sport. He explains as follows:
“It is a shoe that should only be judged by the emotion it evokes in a child who sees it for the first time, whatever it may be. We belong to a time when pictures leak to the right and left and products are unveiled without any consideration or emotional attachment. My goal is to offer a visceral experience, that the child discovers this shoe at Ben Simmons’ feet when he enters the arena or is worn by his favorite athletes on the field.”
This model is based on the concept developed by Jerry Lorenzo and Nike for their Nike Air Fear of God 1, but a new variable is added to the design. Inspired by the NBA players’ high sneaker rotation between their pre-match training known as “shoot around” and the game time periods, this iteration reveals itself in a more refined form. It is indeed not uncommon to see a player exchange the pair he wears during a match several times. While maintaining a largely identical look, the design still shows some notable changes. They are located in particular at the lacing system that abandons the upper to wrap itself around the ankle support. Another variance, this time attributed to the heel which highlights a vertical closure like a Nike Bonafide. Comfort and mobility are therefore on the agenda, enhanced by a Zoom Air unit twice as high at the heel.
If P.J. Tucker was not slow to wear the model, it will still be a few days and the date of December 15 to try to get on the Nike Store this Nike Air Fear of God Shoot Around whose price is announced between 300 and 350 euros. This release will take place at the same time as the complete collection.
