Jerry Lorenzo and Nike‘s Air Fear of God 1 exemplifies high street, basketball-inspired style, and now it’s set to release in a “Noir” colorway. Though past Air FOG 1 releases have ranged from elegant (“Oatmeal”) to crisp (“Frosted Spruce”) the “Noir” is undeniably the starkest makeup yet, and puts its unique construction on full display.

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.

The Nike Air Fear of God 1 “Noir” will release on April 25 via retailers like Foot Locker and is priced at $350 USD.

Elsewhere in the Nike collaborative landscape, UNDEFEATED is reportedly working on three more Air Max 97s.
