Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God is in a class of its own. Since its inception in 2013, the “grunge chic” label has created a brand identity that can keep up with fashion houses over a century old. The introduction of the Essentials line in 2018 it was well-received by many and for good reason. When Fear of God Essentials teamed up with Converse last year, fans were given the chance to pick up a redesigned Chuck 70 Hi. Now, the two are joining forces again to receive a flipped version.
Taking the same inspiration as last year’s design, Fear of God and Converse have made a simple twist. A black/egret take has been applied to the Chuck 70 Hi, colour flipping 2019’s egret/black colourway. Furthermore, the use of earthy tones adds to Fear of God Essentials signature aesthetic; combining streetwear design with classic pieces.
A black canvas upper is complimented through the use of a cream toe box and tongue. The lacing system is not like traditional Converse and is complete with Fear of God’s design. Elongated laces wrap around the ankle through a loop on the heel; linking a familiar detail used on the last collaboration between the two. Converse’s iconic cream rubber midsole is complete with the familiar black stripe throughout and rubberised heel badges feature both brands logos.
Costing £90/€110, this sneaker won’t break the bank. Will you be adding this to your collection?
