The L.A.-based brand has once again teamed up with Vans, this time on some more unconventional styles.
Even though Fear Of God continues to reign over the worlds of ready-to-wear fashion and highest-end streetwear (and make custom jackets for our “Citizen of the Year” Colin Kaepernick), founder and designer Jerry Lorenzo has never lost sight of the brand’s younger, cash-strapped fans. Lorenzo’s mainline label may sell a $1,100 military sneaker, but over the past year he’s worked with Vans to help bring his edgy-casual aesthetic to the masses. And now the two companies are back with a new collection of kicks that won’t wreck your bank account.
All three pairs feature the distinct luxe-streetwear style that has propelled Fear of God and Lorenzo to the top of the game. The Vans x Fear Of God sneaker is a designer take on the Style 147, and comes in striking red, black, and white colorways. It features a mixed suede and canvas upper, metal “Fear of God” logo hit on the strap, and a drop-in sockliner. For all the logo lovers, there is a duo of Vans x F.O.G. (that’s Lorenzo’s affordable, Cool Teen™ approved sub-label) sneakers, which includes mid-top and low-top styles. Both pairs feature an inverted Fear Of God logo print and are made of a corduroy, canvas and suede with a glossy outsole. Between the entire collection, there is a little something for everyone: minimalists will dig the subtler slip-on, while loud dressers can cop the text-covered kicks.
The range of sneakers is sure to be a hit with fashion-savvy youngsters, but grown-ass men shouldn’t shy away from wearing the kicks either. Each pair is well-designed with enough of a stylish, streetwear spin to be a welcome addition to any wardrobe. Just don’t wait too long to pick up a pair.
