Original Story (05/20/20): A 2006 collaboration between CLOT and Nike is set to return in 2021 for its 15th anniversary, the Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death.” The shoe first released to celebrate the grand opening of ACU Shanghai, China’s first sneaker boutique.

This Air Max 1 showcases CLOT’s Chinese roots, reflected by its “Chi” theme. Amongst Chinese history, “Chi” is known as spiritual energy that flows everywhere and most commonly relates to the human body and its connection with the universe. The sneaker has insoles that reflect pressure points, whilst the translucent outsole displays an image of the foot. The no-liner construction features a transparent toe-box, snakeskin swooshes and tongue, where the ankle collar uses ostrich skin.

Look for the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “Kiss Of Death” to make its return sometime in 2021 in men’s, preschool, and toddler sizing. Grab a look at the 2006 version below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
