The designer’s ongoing partnership with Converse dates to 2018, which was centered on the classic Chuck 70 that was released exclusively at PacSun for the Fear of God Essentials line. Of the three iterations being released this week, two were initially introduced in 2018 in the black and cream colorways, and a new tan makeup is dropping as well. Similar to the pairs that were released in the past, Lorenzo put his spin on the silhouette with elongated laces that are meant to wrap around the ankle and through the heel loop. Plus, the traditional Converse branding on the heel is replaced by the Fear of God Essentials logo.
In a response to the coronavirus outbreak, Nike, parent company of Converse, put out an uplifting message this past weekend through its social media channels encouraging people to remain indoors. It read: “If you ever dreamed of playing for millions around the world, now is your chance. Play inside; play for the world.”
