Late last year, Jerry Lorenzo debuted his long-awaited Athletics capsule with adidas. Joining Fear of God and ESSENTIALS, the third tier in the Los Angeles-based designer’s brand rolodex is a slight nod to Lorenzo’s Christian faith, referencing the Trinity of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. “I wanted our brand to be complete in and of itself,” Lorenzo previously told Hypebeast.

The Fear of God Athletics 1 was a notable standout within the initial collection, a street meets sports approach to a classic basketball mid-top sneaker. Having released in black, white, camel and desert yellow, a new grey iteration with a black toe box just joined the mix. The forthcoming sneaker will boast a premium knit upper with a neoprene collar in a warm gray colorway, offering a snug glove-like fit that is accentuated by Three Stripes that cage around the base and loop into the laces.

Rounding the shoe out is a black toe box atop a translucent off-white midsole. The adidas Fear of God Athletics 1 “Black Toe” doesn’t have a release date yet, but expect the sneaker to drop for $250 USD on adidas and select retailers later this year.
