In recreating the sneaker, Lorenzo is bringing his own personal and emotional experiences with the sneaker into the present. "When the kid walked in the classroom with the Air Raid, no one told me that I was supposed to like the Air Raid. I was just drawn to it, the design, the colors. It was like, oh my God, what is that?" he recalled.
For the Nike Air Fear of God Spring/Summer 2019 collection, the Raid will be joined by a Moc, double-hooded sweatshirt, tees, shorts and pants. The entire collection will launch on April 27.
