Style ID: AR4237 902 Colorway: Multi-Color/Off Noir-String-Oatmeal Retail Price: $350 Release Date: February 28, 2020 Where to Buy: Nike SNKRS app (Date might change) If you keep up with the blog then you know how much I love the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’. Honestly, I might even like it more than the Travis Scott Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Cactus Jack’ release. But that’s not what this post is about. What the heck is going on with the Nike Air Fear of God 1 release?

The Question

For a few months now there had been reports of the new colorway coming out and Jerry Lorenzo, the man behind the design, all but confirmed that with his instagram posts. In the instagram posts he modeled the photos like Allen Iverson did in his famous Reebok campaign. He stated that it was his inspiration behind this design.

There had been confirmed reports that the release date would be February 28, 2020. It seemed a bit odd that the SNKRS app would have both the Travis Scott’s and the Fear of God’s coming out on back to back days. But once Travis Scott surprisingly released his sneakers exclusively on his website the week before the scheduled release date, it seemed to make more sense that the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’ was going to get the hype it deserved.

But, the sneakers were taken off the SNKRS app. They did make a quick appearance on the site. Oddly, they quickly vanished for a reason no one seems to know. It is important to note that the Travis Scott’s were also taken off the site once they were released. So what could possibly be going on with the release of the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’?

Misdirection?

There are confirmed reports that some stores are preparing to receive a batch of the sneakers. Unfortunately, there has been no store list made public. One thing that we do know is that the European release of the sneaker seems to be set for February 28, 2020. There are a few stores like SVD and Solebox that have initiated a raffle for the release. However, the raffle is only available to the European market.

What we believe will happen is that there will be a surprise release of the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’ because of the way everyone is being left in the dark so far. The European release will obviously go as planned but expect an unannounced drop just like Travis Scott’s online release.

One other theory that we believe is just as likely to happen is that it will be released next weekend or some other time but scheduled. They might simply just separate the European release with the Americas release. At the end of the day is is also as likely for a release on February 28, 2020 just as what is currently announced. But, as the time gets closer and closer, it just doesn’t seem that likely.

What Will Happen?

One thing that we do know for sure is that the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’ is going to be worth all the trouble for all those who are lucky enough to snag a pair. What are your thoughts on when the sneaker might be released? Let us know in the comments below!


Where will the Nike Air Fear of God 1 ‘The Question’ be released?

As of February 27, 2020 only European stores look as though they will have the sneaker for the February 28, 2020 release date.

Who designed the Fear of God 1’s

Jerry Lorenzo designed the sneaker and has stated that Allen Iverson’s signature sneaker, ‘Question’, was his inspiration.

When will the sneaker be released in the US?

Right now only speculations can be made. It does appear that there could be an unannounced drop. But they could also just reschedule the launch date.
