History of Mens Fear of god Shoes
One of the freshest footwear names to go into stellar orbit within just a few years of launch, Fear of God is the brainchild of American Jerry Lorenzo, the son of ex-MLB player and coach Jerry Manuel. It’s fair to say that Lorenzo did not come from a fashion background and did not even study fashion or design on any level. His original goal was to become a sports agent, and it was while managing MLB player Matt Kemp that Lorenzo first became aware of the lack of clothing choices for his star client. Inspired by his deep-rooted Christian religion, his love of rock music, and his huge admiration for the work and achievements of Kanye West, Lorenzo launched Fear of God as an outlet for his ‘chic grunge’ visionary clothing designs. He quickly went from unknown new designer to celebrated fashion icon, riding against the tide of the industry and dropping his new collections to his army of devoted followers on his own terms rather than when dictated by the fashion season. He now collaborates with one of his original inspirational heroes, Kanye, and is also working with Nike on street-cool luxury footwear.
