After a series of teasers, the official look at the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D. Solar Red ” is finally out. The trilogy is now complete as the latest iteration follows the “K.O.D. OG” and “K.O.D. CHA” releases from Kevin Poon and Edison Chen‘s imprint.
The Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D. Solar Red” furth cements CLOT’s heritage status and history within sneaker culture, drawing from the exclusive colorway is created for Kanye West during his “Touch The Sky” tour stop in Hong Kong back in 2006. It is rumored that only several pairs of the special sneaker exist in the world seen during the show hosted by CLOT co-founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon.
It is interesting to note that when Nike’s now-defunct NikeiD program offered the same color options for the Air Max 1, CLOT fans rushed to recreate the exclusive colorway forcing Nike to halt production of the combination.
The upcoming CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D. Solar Red” release is upgraded with a reflective red heel with gold embroidery. This fusion yet again screams CLOT’s aim to bridge the East and West while reminicising the iconic Chinese mix of red and gold just in time for the Olympics. Aside from the mesh toe caps, bright neon pink-paneled upper, silver mudguard and embossed CLOT branding, the shoe features black/white footprint printed insoles and a new take on the “K.O.D.” foot reflexology sole unit.
The CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D. Solar Red” will hit the shelves exclusively at JUICE locations worldwide and online. A pre-release will be observed at JUICE LOS ANGELES on July 17 with a wider release set for July 20 at other JUICE locations, JUICESTORE App and special pop-up activations.
