Streetwear label Fear of God is well known for their premium and fashionable apparel. Combined with simple styles, the brand goes with just about anything. This year, that same minimal design language goes with Converse for a clean new collection.

Fear of God founder Jerry Lorenzo is known for playing things pretty close to the chest when it comes to his projects. This week, the now-iconic designer unveiled a collaborative effort with Converse that is sure to be hunted by sneakerheads around the world. As a project featuring the Fear of God Essentials label, the effort with Converse will likely remain an understated body of work marked by minimalist design and tonal colors. Our first example of this comes from the footwear seen in the early preview. Using a pair of All-Stars, Lorenzo has managed to make them appear almost deconstructed with just two colors and minimal materials. On the mismatching pairs, the outer shell of the upper comes in either white or black, while the tongue peeking in between is featured in the opposite color. There appears to be little stitching around the model and little to no branding to round out the look.


After an early release at ComplexCon early in November, Jerry Lorenzo has finally announced an official release for his Fear of God Converse Chuck 70s. With a set date of December 12th, the shoes are expected to drop at Urban Outfitters as a part of his “Essentials” collection, though a wider release has not yet been confirmed. Check out the early product shots below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more information regarding the collection.
