Teasing that there are around 30 more iterations...
Fear of God-founder, Jerry Lorenzo, has definitely dropped a few people’s favourite sneaker after the creative brought the pair of Fear of God 1s into existence. However, he isn’t done with them as he recently took to his personal Instagram account to reveal a whole array of new Fear of God 1 iterations.
As for what we saw, Jerry teased a never-seen-before beige colourway that features orange or yellow on the TPU cage, interestingly this was created after the designer found inspiration from his alma mater, Florida A&M University. However, this was just one of the iterations, according to his lengthy caption, around 30 versions of the sneaker exist but whether we will see them all drop, I guess we will have to wait and see.

...over the past year we’ve sampled tons of sneakers in lots of colorways, fabrics, materials, etc... i design in 3d so i have to touch and feel it before pulling the trigger. my gifts are in physicality not photoshop. there’s actually about 20 to 30 more vibes/sneakers in this box... some will see the light of day, some may forever live in this box... in an era of leaks, i’m not mad this colorway made the light of day... i actually love this orange box color cage and bone upper vibe... this shoe for was made for @famu_1887 mens/womens hoop teams... when i played baseball there in the 90’s we didnt have coordinated team shoes and we just wore whatever we could afford... playing ball at a black college in the 90’s was everything except D1. ...anyhow, i said if i ever get the opportunity i’m going to make @famuathletics what michicgan and the fab 5 were to me in college or what orgegon is to kids today... so anyhow, this is a just a sample from that train of thought... not sure whether or not it sees the light of day or hits the @famuathletics teams, but thought i’d provide you with the context of the spirit behind this (sample) shoe... everything we do has reason and has foundation. we don’t move on hype. and we dont ride waves. 👊🏽
