Jerry Lorenzo took to Instagram from Fear of God‘s Italian factory to showcase the label’s latest must-have drop. A slimmer take on the iconic Basketball Sneaker, Fear of God’s new 101 now features a patchworked upper crafted from vintage T-shirts sourced from Lorenzo’s personal collection. Atop the clean white midsole and complemented by metal eyelets, each tall shoe utilizes the retro shirts to create a rich graphic pop, with band logos, tour dates, artwork and prints reimagined into playfully haphazard collages.

Stay tuned for more news on the limited sneakers, which are purported to drop in November.

Most recently, Fear of God continued rolling out its Sixth Collection drops.

five or six years ago we weren’t the first brand to repurpose vintage tees… printing on a vintage tee and saying “this is what we believe to be the best graphic tee” is not genius in any way… “this graphic, this exact shape and fit, exact fade, drape, etc. are stamped/approved by us” …but it was a new proposition at the time… the best ideas, always tend to be the most obvious… since then it seemed like the trend somewhat got out of hand, from bedazzling etc to other wild vintage vibes. anyhow, for a while ive been rocking the same few 2 or 3 tees inside/out to be a bit more un-opinionated with my fashion and i guess in way as i’ve done my entire life, try to further separate myself thru clothing… but my love for vintage tees hasn’t changed. fast forward a few years and i found myself sitting on a few hundred of rare tees from the 80’s and 90’s that i don’t wear anymore… instead of throwing them up on @grailed …we came up with a new way to “repurpose” them… again. introducing the 101 high… all sneakers, literally 1OF1… dropping next month… (btw, the last is still inside this shoe, it will come w/ cotton laces, not the wired ones pictured ?) …tees were hand picked all around the world, and shoes are hand-constructed at the highest level in ??… #gamesix
