Ahead of the Nike Air Fear of God 1 launch, Nike Basketball will also release a toned down model as a part of the collection. Dubbed the “Shoot Around,” its inspiration lies within NBA’s elite constantly switching out kicks between their shoot around and game time periods. The model takes the same shape as the Nike Air Fear of God 1 but removes the lacing cage for a simpler look. The heel’s zipper also makes a comeback as its lacing simple wraps around the ankle and is secured by a lace toggle.
The Nike Air Fear of God “Shoot Around” arrives on December 15 for $300 USD alongside the rest of the Fear of God x Nike Basketball collection. Fans of the collaboration can also check out our discussion with P.J. Tucker on the silhouette.
