Simultaneously durable and supple, the ultra high-cut uppers are constructed of two major materials: ballistic nylon mesh and soft suede. The former is present on the high-cut collar and midfoot, while the latter graces the toebox. Atop this appealing base arrives a latticed plastic cage that doubles as anchor points for the lacing system. This skeletal structure starts low with a small Swoosh on the shoe’s middle before crescendoing towards the collar and adding a Nike Sportswear-esque hit on the heel. Rear zippers ensure an easy fit, a small touch of hi-vis reflective material appears on the toebox, and leather sockliners proffer luxurious comfort.
Sculpted EVA midsoles feature a flat black hue, with double-stacked heel Zoom Air tech ever-so-slightly visible through a smoky, tinted window. Embossed Fear of God branding is present on heel and midfoot alike, while the outsole offers a circular traction pattern and shows the Zoom units off in full. An accompanying dustbag and sizable orange box add a final dash of packaging flair.
