CLOT x Nike 1World Air Force 1

24 Dec

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Nike is going, the fuck, in with this 1World Air Force 1 series. The latest is this collaboration with Hong Kong-based “lifestyle business” CLOT Inc. A rundown of the kicks, via HypeBeast:

The Air Force 1 is themed around traditional themes of luck, happiness and prosperity. As a throwback to China’s roots, the shoe’s upper is comprised of a subtly patterned CLOT Royale red silk with visible Air unit and black highlights. However, the most interesting point of this shoe is a highly customizable factor which includes a top layer which can be removed via burning and cutting to reveal a second leather layer which also features the similar graphics as seen on the silk layer. The tear-away concept was put to use as CLOT’s own philosophy of going beyond the superficial to find deeper meanings. Keeping with the Chinese New Year theme, the shoe will come with a “Chinese Candy Box”, a traditional method of packaging treats during this monumental yearly occasion.

It’s limited to a Hong Kong release, but as I’ve said, I still love the direction that Nike is going in with this series. More pics after the jump.
