The Yeezy 700 V3 ‘Alvah’ delivers a stealthy colorway of Kanye West’s sculpted silhouette. A black and grey mesh upper is fortified with glow-in-the-dark RPU overlays for structural support. Interior bootie construction is good for a snug, comfortable fit, while reflective accents at the base of the tongue deliver added visibility in low-light conditions. Forgoing Boost cushioning, the sneaker rides on a PU encapsulated EVA midsole.
The adidas Yeezy 700 V3 ‘Safflower’ showcases a mostly neutral color scheme in keeping with the Yeezy brand’s signature palette.

The sneaker’s interior bootie construction is rendered in a contrasting black finish, offering a snug, comfortable fit. A PU encapsulated EVA midsole anchors the streamlined silhouette.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 ‘Sun’ treats the lifestyle runner to a lively color scheme that accentuates the silhouette’s multi-layered build.

A clashing coral finish is applied to the bulky midsole, featuring full-length drop-in Boost cushioning for a smooth ride. Underfoot, a herringbone rubber outsole delivers optimal grip.

The tooling takes the form of a contrasting white cup sole with a visible double-stack Zoom heel unit.
The Nike Air Fear Of God 1 ‘Frosted Spruce’ continues the procession of ultra-modern basketball footwear which began in 2018 with the first Air Fear Of God sneaker.

The shoe is supported by double-stacked Nike Zoom Air cushioning.
Made available November 2019, the Air Fear Of God 1 ‘Oatmeal’ was created by designer Jerry Lorenzo and Nike, updating the shoe with different earth tone hues.

The translucent outsole wall peaks at the midfoot and heel for supplementary support, while double stacked Zoom Air offers premium cushioning.
In 2018, details-obsessed designer and originator of the Fear Of God label, Jerry Lorenzo, teamed up with Nike to produce the Nike Air Fear Of God sneaker.

A collaboration between Nike and streetwear designer Jerry Lorenzo, the Air Fear Of God 1 ‘Light Bone Sail’ takes inspiration from the Huarache Light with zig-zagging design lines and elevated materials.

Support is provided by an angled, molded cage that doubles as secure eyestays, and a zipper splits the back for functional entry and removal.
Style visionary Jerry Lorenzo and Nike teamed up to continue the Nike x Air Fear Of God line with this ‘The Atmosphere’ Fear of God 1 in July 2019 that was an exclusive SNKRS drop at ComplexCon in Chicago. The shoe’s high-cut bootie upper is crafted from bold yellow mesh, reinforced with a TPU cage that allows for personalized lace reconfiguration. A tonal zipper appears on the heel to allow easier on and off, set above raised ‘Fear of God’ lettering. As in previous releases, this edition includes an icy, double-stacked Zoom Air unit and a concentric circle tread pattern.
The Air Force 1 ’07 LV8 ‘What The LA’ revamps the 1982 Bruce Kilgore icon with a well-known colorway executed in asymmetrical details on each shoe. Released in November 2019, the sneaker pays homage to Los Angeles-area sports teams via its chromatic collage. The combination of leathers and suede emulate uniforms belonging to the Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Rams, Chargers and Kings. Baseball-style stitching and a basketball-textured Swoosh reinforce the multi-sport motif.
