The Nike Air Max 1 has become a timeless silhouette, classified as one of the premiere Air Max silhouettes ever. Most notably, the CLOT collaboration from 2006 has been cemented as one of the most appreciated and loved joint efforts of the Oregon sportswear company’s footwear catalog. For fans of the nearly 15-year-old silhouette, they’ll be happy to hear that it is set to return this year.
Looking at the Clot x Nike Air Max 1, it’s clear that the value is in the details. Chinese characters appear above the translucent toe box and insole, while other Chinese artwork decorates the pair’s rear. The multi-colored aesthetic, including beige suede and red accents further symbolize the East’s influence that Edison Chen implements on his designs. Neon lettering decorates the tongue branding, while the orange midsole contrasts from the rest of the profile. Underfoot, a geometric design is displayed on the translucent sole.
The CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death” is releasing today through local retailers but is still available for raffle through END.
