The sequel to designer Jerry Lorenzo’s debut Nike Air Fear of God sneaker collaboration is almost here. After Lorenzo hinted at the upcoming project earlier this year on Instagram, the Swoosh has officially confirmed the release dates for two brand new sneakers: the Nike Air Fear of God Raid and Nike Air Fear of God Moc.
The latest installment will take it back to Lorenzo’s first experience with the classic Nike Air Raid basketball shoe when he was a high school sophomore. Lorenzo admired the black and gray color scheme along with the unique geometric patterns and the cross straps, which was the first non-Jordan shoe that stuck with him.

“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 said. “It became interconnected with all these other real emotional things that were happening at the time of the shoe.”
The second Nike Air Fear of God drop follows his desire to honor the brand’s historically strong design language through modern shape
