Lorenzo isn't sure if these will ever make their way to his former school.
Jerry Lorenzo's collaboration with Nike, particularly the Nike Air Fear Of God 1, has been turning heads in the sneaker community. The fresh design brings Lorenzo's Fear Of God flavor to an all-new silhouette that combines function and fashion. While only a couple of colorways have released so far, there are others in the works, including a nod to Lorenzo's former alma mater Florida A&M University.
The Fear Of God creator took to Instagram to show off an orange and light bone colorway of his signature shoe. In the post, Lorenzo says "in an era of leaks, i’m not mad this colorway made the light of day... i actually love this orange box color cage and bone upper vibe... this shoe for was made for @famu_1887 mens/womens hoop teams..."
Lorenzo continued by saying that back when he played at the school, everyone wore whatever they could afford and nobody coordinated their shoe colors. He said he's not sure if the kicks will ever see the light of day but he did reflect on why he made these saying "I said if i ever get the opportunity i’m going to make @famuathletics what michicgan and the fab 5 were to me in college or what orgegon is to kids today... so anyhow, this is a just a sample from that train of thought."
According to Lorenzo's post, there are 20 to 30 other colorways of the shoe that have been produced as a sample, but there are currently no plans to release them just yet.
