Teaming for the re-release of the 110-year-old Skidgrip model, Converse has connected with Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God label for the reviving of their heritage style.
While further takes on the silhouette are planned, the initial drop sees a high top version reimagined under Lorenzo’s eye, seamlessly fusing original elements with contemporary updates. Speaking on the release, Jerry commented:
“The sole is the biggest takeaway when you look at the sneaker, It feels very much like our main line, the Fear of God 101, and gives it the same feeling looking down as looking down at the Skidgrip in the late ’80s.”
Check out some more shots of the style below and pick up a pair via the brand’s website starting August 27th.
