Original Story (03/29/20): Jerry Lorenzo has taken this lazy Sunday as an opportunity to announce that the Nike Air Fear of God Raid will get a release in black/grey this summer, a colorway that was initially reserved for friends and family.
Previewed in the Nike x Fear Of God SS19 lookbook, the Air Fear of God Raid modernizes the original 1992 Air Raid outdoor basketball shoe with a luxurious streetwear twist. The shoe released last year in Black and Light Bone, but this 2020 release will be slightly different than the other two. As seen in the Zegna x Fear of God Fall 2020 lookbook, the laces on the F&F Air Raid will come hidden under the straps for a cleaner toe box look, a design element that Lorenzo would’ve implemented in the Black and Light Bone releases had he done another round of sampling.
As confirmed by Jerry Lorenzo, the Nike Air Fear of God Raid will release sometime this summer. Check out Lorenzo’s announcement below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates on this release.
