Since 2006, Nike has been launching a series of sneaker collaborations with CLOT, the brainchild of Edison Chen and Kevin Poon. Through their bold and highly creative designs, CLOT has demonstrated their deep exploration and thinking into the origins of their own culture. At the same time, Nike has continued to show their respect and support towards different cultures of the world. The collaboration of these two brands has led to the bridging of sneaker cultures of the East and West.
Nike Air Max 1 Clot Kiss of Death
PRICE: $220 AUD
The Air Max 1 'Kiss of Death' was Nike and CLOT's very first collaboration sneaker. Designers from both sides took inspiration from Chinese acupuncture, a highly significant cultural icon, and applied it to the Air Max 1 silhouette. Its bold toe box design is constructed from the transparent plastic, giving an unobscured view into the insoles that feature the feet's pressure points. Additionally, encased inside the transparent outsoles are images that depict a pair of human feet. The 2006 'Kiss of Death' marks the beginning of an exploratory journey into Chinese traditional culture for these two brands and the 2021 version celebrates this legendary release.
