As a follow up to our recent Epic Phantom React unboxing, this week’s OPENING ACT features the vibrant Jerry Lorenzo and Nike Fear of God Ones in a limited orange pulse colorway. “The whole thing is just shouting orange, it’s a really bright color. It looks like an orange creamsicle,” jokes Adjima’s head-honcho Kayo Cosio. But their loudness is part of the appeal. “I have a habit of liking shoes that are not for everyone. My wife is actually saying that I own too many bright orange shoes now. But she loves Fear Of God and Jerry Lorenzo, so I think she’s OK with these ones. I was nervous buying these because I know some guys who bought them and have a hard time wearing them because they’re hard to pair with pants. I wanted the challenge though. So follow me on Instagram and if I look stupid just let me know.”
Today we unpackage the Nike Air Fear Of God moccasins in a particle beige colorway for our weekly installment of “Opening Act.” Honeycomb bossman Kayo Cosio gravitates towards these as a universal pair of sneakers that are comfortable to wear in most situations and easy to match with any outfit. They were also pretty easy to cop since there are a lot of haters out there: Failing to win the raffle at Commonwealth on release day, he stopped by their shop the following morning to see if anyone failed to pick up their pair, and indeed two colorways in his size were up for grabs. “A lot of people call them basura,” he laughs. But the lightweight feel and understated design appeal to him.
