Revealed last year in an editorial, Jerry Lorenzo recently announced that the Friends & Family Nike Air Fear of God Raid is set to release this year.

Taking to Instagram, the Fear of God designer noted that the “F&F” take on the collaborative shoe will be releasing sometime this summer. “Yes, the friends and family Air Raid is releasing sometime this summer. Of all the sneakers I’ve designed (mainline, Nike, Vans, Zegna, Essentials, etc), this is by far my favorite.”

Lorenzo also noted that the upcoming colorway will also feature some tooling differences that weren’t seen on the previous “Black” and “Light Bone” releases. “I feel like we modernized this shoe perfectly. Unlike the bone and black general releases, we hid the laces under the straps for a cleaner toe box. Had we had one more round of sampling with the bone and black Raids, I would have removed the laces on those also. As much as I love those two, the laces felt slightly like an over-designed element I wish I had removed.

In a separate Instagram post, Lorenzo also revealed that he has another Nike Basketball apparel range coming this year. Offering a brief look, we get an idea of what is being called the “black bulls-inspired warm-up jacket” which expected to be a lead item included in the range.
