Having built renown for his signature fashion label Fear of God as well as its trailblazing collaborative efforts in the sneaker market, Jerry Lorenzo’s Essentials line supplies a younger audience with premium quality basics. The same approach is visible in the label’s latest collaboration with Converse.
Two neutral colorways of the iconic Chuck 70 Hi receive Lorenzo’s characteristic treatment of color blocking and material interplay. While the Chuck’s uppers are kept in traditional canvas, their tongues are made from contrasting leather. Furthermore, Lorenzo adds black toe caps as well as extra loops on the heel with extra-long laces to match.
Lorenzo shares parts of his design philosophy as well as some inside stories from the Chicago circle of creators including Kanye and Virgil when sneaker shopping with the good people over at Complex:
