Hold up people! The upcoming CLOT Nike Air Max 1 Kiss of Death Beige is going to light up the sneaker tracks right after it drops! And no, we aren’t making anything up. This colour scheme on the iconic ranges of the Nike Swoosh trainers for running was only a matter of time. Edison Chen’s CLOT and our favourite series of Air Max shoes have been in partnership before. However, this time marks something special. Using and utilising Chinese culture in sneakers have always been a core trait of the CLOT team. Way back in 2006, when the collab with Nike happened for the first time, the Hong Kong dropped a massive bomb with this “Kiss of Death” theme. And guess what? The appeal is still the same since the collab is dropping the silo once again!
Even though it has been over 15 years that this silo came out, the sneaker hunters are still falling for it. The sole reason would be a stylish colour scheme. But the construction isn’t something you can ignore either. On top of everything, this year the release is much more anticipated because we are all eager to witness the modern engineering this vintage Air Max 1 will bring. Make sure to follow us on FastSoleUK if you want daily updates on AIR trainers.
First of all, the theme is extraordinary! Not just because of the red and laser orange accents but also for the see-through plastic material toe box. This silo comes wearing some Chinese traditional hints. For example, the bright red overlays are definitely aesthetics taken from the Chinese New Year, The Year of the OX. The heel embroidery of the branding shows off a Chinese knotting pattern with vibrant orange and matches the Nike Air midsole. Premium red leather tongue tab, heel cap, and the Nike Swoosh carry a luxury feel, while the tonal beige suede overlays keep it subtle.
A neon green hue on the eyelets look phenomenal in this palette and so does the unique design of the toe-box. This area is totally transparent and shows some underlayers for a deconstructed look. Varieties of leather material and synthetics make sure the shoe is robust and flexible. Finally, an Air Max unit on the heel finishes it off.
CLOT Nike Air Max 1 Kiss of Death Beige will release on March 6th via listed UK and European retailers. Check out LV8 Obsidian Black Wolf Grey while you’re here.
