Fear of God
“We're always attempting to create a product that's rooted in function and necessity, that is preceded by a clear aesthetic point of view,” - Jerry Lorenzo.
Birkenstock and Fear of God are proud to present the Los Feliz, a new footwear proposition designed by Fear of God and developed exclusively with Birkenstock 1774, the German heritage brand’s special projects and collaboration unit.
Designed with intention, the Los Feliz was rigorously crafted to both honor Birkenstock’s functional heritage and evoke Fear of God’s inimitable, timeless design language.
The result is a sandal inspired by the unique hillside enclaves of its Los Angeles neighborhood namesake and built with the easy, elevated fluidity that defines Fear of God’s design language, yet retains the purity and beauty of Birkenstock’s iconic silhouettes.
Specific design cues include a deep heel cup, raw edge outsole, as well as an exaggerated, monolithic strap closure that accentuates the shoe’s minimal look and feel. Offered in two premium uppers—calf suede and wool felt—the Los Feliz wraps Birkenstock’s signature cork-latex footbed in tonal suede.
The higher profile and translucent rubber sole is a subtle nod to Fear of God’s signature footwear, as well as Birkenstock’s renowned functionality and durability while imbuing the Los Feliz with a sophisticated edge.
Made in Germany, the Los Feliz is available in both adult and children's sizing, marking the first ever Birkenstock 1774 collaboration shoe offered for kids.
The Los Feliz for adults in suede Taupe, Cement and Ash, and kids in suede Taupe will be available at fearofgod.com on January 25.
