Fear of God, founded by American designer Jerry Lorenzo, is a brand that revels in simplicity. He believes that the perfect design is one you strip back elements till only what is necessary remains. Fear of God has a design language rooted in elevated basics that are seasonless, timeless, ageless, and genderless. The focus is on the finest quality materials and impeccable construction, which guarantee the utmost comfort and effortless style. The brand has a penchant for muted neutrals and monochrome styling.
BIRKENSTOCK has a design philosophy that is very similar to Fear of God. Our designs transcend time, gender, age, and seasons. The iconic footbed is at the core of this design collaboration. The flawless anatomically shaped structure of the footbed is the driving force behind the unparalleled comfort that we provide. It remains a large part of the inspiration behind the designs of this collaboration.
The idea of this collaboration is to redefine the terms of everyday luxury. The quietly sophisticated and supremely functional forces of BIRKENSTOCK and Fear of God have allied to create footwear that is modern, minimal, and practical.
The Los FelizInspired by and named after its Californian neighborhood, Los Feliz is effortlessly modern yet iconic at the same time. Stemming from the belief that the only design needed is one that’s functional, the humble Los Feliz sandal aptly embodies the best of both brands, BIRKENSTOCK 1774 and Fear of God. The slip-on sandal features a single exaggerated monolithic strap. The fully wrapped raw edge outsole gives it a seamless, almost sculptural appearance. The deep heel cup and the BIRKENSTOCK footbed come lined with color-coordinated leather for an elegant luxe appeal. The translucent TPU rubber outsole is a nod to the classic Fear of God design aesthetic. Find Los Feliz in suede leather in muted shades of ash and taupe.
