Earlier this week, rumors suggested that new iterations of Jerry Lorenzo’s highly coveted Nike Air Fear of God sneaker collaboration are arriving later this year thanks to @py_leaks on Twitter.
According to the leaks, each of the Air Fear of God 1 and the Shoot Around version of the hightop basketball shoe is expected to launch in a new colorway this summer. While no official images have been released, early renderings show the “Amarillo” makeup boasting an eye-catching yellow upper while the “Golden Glove Yellow” features a darker hue. Both versions sit atop a white chunky midsole with a blue Zoom Air cushioning unit at the heel.
Shortly after the information surfaced, the menswear designer took to Instagram to address the leaks surrounding his signature basketball model. In a now-deleted post on Lorenzo’s Instagram Story with the upcoming Air Shoot Around on-feet, he states “Message From Management: Yes we sampled this #GardenGloveYellow Shoot Around. No, It’s never been confirmed. Please stop believing photoshops.” Lorenzo, however, did not shed light on the accompanying “Amarillo” colorway also rumored to release later this year.
In other related news, two new Nike x Fear of God sneakers are expected to release later this year, including the Nike Air Fear of God 180 and the Moccasin, which were previewed during 2019 Paris Fashion Week Men’s as part of Fear of God’s upcoming sixth collection.
