Brand: Fear of God x Nike

Model: Air Fear of God Raid

Key Features: The sneaker is inspired by 1992’s Air Raid, particularly the eye-catching straps that cross over the forefoot. It has a mid-top construction and padded collar and a sole unit featuring designer Jerry Lorenzo’s original one-piece tooling, which is made by using a Fear of God last combined with the Air Max 180’s Max Air unit in the heel.

Release Date: The Light Bone version dropped on April 27. The Black colorway will be released on May 17.

Price: $190 / €180

Buy: Nike and select retailers (see list below)

Editor’s Notes: After the “Light Bone” version dropped in late April, Nike has now confirmed that the black Nike Air Fear of God will be released today, May 17, alongside two new colorways of the Nike Air Fear of God Moc.

Previously, Jerry Lorenzo shared a side-by-side comparison of his new Nike Air Fear of God Raid and the 1992 Nike Air Raid. Speaking to Sneaker Freaker in December, Lorenzo said the Air Raid is his all-time favorite Nike sneaker outside of the Air Jordan line.

“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 tells Nike. "It became interconnected with all these other real emotional things that were happening at the time of the shoe."

The Air Fear of God Raid will be joining the already-released Air Fear of God 1 and a collaborative Air Skylon 2, as well as a Fear of God moccasin, which drops the same day.
