With the recent news of Fear of God dropping Nike for an Adidas partnership, it seems that we will no longer see any new collaboration sneakers between FoG and the Swoosh…at least for now. Despite this, there is no reason to feel down as the past collaborations between both brands have given us more than enough. From old to newer releases, we look back at our 5 favourite Fear of God x Nike Sneakers that we can’t forget.
Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Light Bone”
Released at the end of 2018, The Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Light Bone” embodied the ethos behind the Nike x Fear of God partnership. Through the minimalist design, the sneaker presented a very fresh aesthetic, while still remaining practical enough for heavy use. With a grey upper, black Nike Swoosh, white midsole, and a translucent sole, this sneaker is one of the top products between the two iconic brands.
Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Black”
Sharing the same silhouette, The Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Black” presented a more subtle design as the upper components blended in with each other. Overall, the sneaker displayed three main shades; black, off white, and translucent blue. Through its classic colour blocking and design, this sneaker may be one of the most recognizable pairs the collaboration between FoG and Nike produced.
Nike Air Fear of God 1 Shoot Around “Light Bone”
As the name suggests, the Nike Air Fear of God 1 Shoot Around was designed for casual gameplay. Unlike the predecessor of this sneaker, the silhouette does not make use of supportive cages as it is replaced with a velcro strap around the top of the boot. Therefore, the sneaker is not suitable for fast-paced basketball but is definitely suitable for a chill day at the gym.
Nike Air Fear of God Raid “Black”
Adding a new element to the iconic Fear of God design, the Nike Air Fear of God Raid comes in a mid-cut silhouette. As most of the other pairs made use of a high-cut design, this sneaker provided versatility, being easier to pair with more outfits. With a black upper, black Nike Swoosh, sail midsole, and a translucent sole, this sneaker is one of the classics.
Fear of God Nike Air Skylon 2
While most sneakers under the Fear of God x Nike partnership showcase more of the FoG design elements, the Fear of God Nike Air Skylon 2 showcases more of Nike’s. Released back in December of 2018, the sneaker showcases a black upper, black Nike Swoosh, black midsole, and sail sole. Overall, the sneaker is the perfect balance between style and a subtle aesthetic.
