Jerry Lorenzo re-discovers a gem in the Skidgrip archives and shapes it for the streets of today. With bold, vibrant colors, the Skidgrip Con-Rad was a go-to for surfers and skaters in the late ‘80s—and was one of Jerry’s childhood favorites
This collaboration reworks the original, keeping the loud colors but evolving the design for a more modern look. While the maxed-out pattern on the canvas isn’t the minimalism you expect from Lorenzo, the clean profile and sleek shape place this updated classic firmly in the Fear of God aesthetic.
