First Look at the Nike Air Fear of God 1 in “Oatmeal” Colorway.
When Jerry Lorenzo‘s Fear of God and Nike first linked in 2018, they gave us the Air Fear Of God 1, an impeccable union of Lorenzo’s high-street designs and Nike’s state of the art performance tech. We first got the light bone and black as well as two bright styles in the form of “Frosted Spruce” and “Orange Pulse” — we were even teased with a yellow colorway. This time around the Air Fear Of God 1 will return in an “Oatmeal” iteration this fall.
The style and design language remain the same. The AFG1 utilizes an “Oatmeal” tan hue that’s a few shades darker “Light Bone” release that came before it. Once again, the mid midsole features a milky, semi-translucent construction, and the only differences from the “Light Bone” earthy palette come in the form of the white midfoot Swooshes and an icy blue-tinted, double-stacked Zoom Air unit in the heel.
The materials used remain unchanged. The collar and midfoot are made of a tightly woven nylon, soft suede can be found at the toebox. While cut-out plastic overlays and rope laces give the shoe more texture. A zipper located on the heel ensures an easy on-easy off fit. Finally, “06 10 24 25” sits on the salmon-colored, perforated insole for a nice hidden design touch.
Co-created with Leo Chang — the man responsible for much of Kevin Durant‘s signature Nike Basketball line — the Air Fear Of God 1 taps inspirations ranging from hoops to streetwear, and if the popularity of prior iterations is any barometer, the Nike Air Fear of God Oatmeal release date is November 2 for a cool $350.
