Streetwear Hiking Sneakers

The New Fear of God Hiking Boots Merge 80s Shoes with Boots

— February 1, 2018 — Fashion
The new Fear of God hiking sneakers are a perfect blend between sneakers and boots -- taking inspiration from 80s basketball shoe silhouettes and the classic hiking boot design. The two influences deliver a fresh new product that marries aesthetics with function. The streetwear brand's newest piece comes in a 'tonal gray' colorway, crafted with a gum sole and a gray 'nubuck upper.'

Like a standard pair of boots, the Fear of God hiking sneakers feature 'D-ring lace loops' and have red laces that are meant to recall 70s Italian hiking boots. Delivering high quality to consumers, the hiking sneakers boast premium materials from Italy. The unique shoes are priced at $995 USD and will be available in February on Fear of God's website.

1. Blended Footwear - The fusion of sneakers and boots opens up opportunities for innovative designs and enhanced functionality.
2. Retro-inspired Silhouettes - Brands can tap into the nostalgia of 80s basketball shoe designs to create fresh and trendy products.
3. Luxury Hiking Sneakers - Combining high-quality materials with hiking-inspired features presents a disruptive opportunity in the luxury footwear market.
