Photos: CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D.” SOLAR RED shoes

Inspiration, per the press release: “The CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D.” – SOLAR RED taps into the historic past of CLOT that has led to its internationally-recognised success in bridging the East and West. The shoe takes inspiration from the extremely exclusive Air Max 1 “Kiss Of Death” in Pink that was designed for and worn by Kanye West during his “Touch The Sky” tour stop in Hong Kong in 2006, a show that was hosted by CLOT co-founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon. Thought to be something of a legend or a myth, the world had only known of several pairs in existence.

“The shoe’s exclusivity was highlighted when Nike’s now-defunct NikeiD program offered the same
color options for the Air Max 1, and CLOT fans began making the shoe as a customization – forcing
Nike to halt production of this specific color combination.

“[Fifteen] years after the elusive shoe came to be, CLOT is finally releasing the sneaker to the public. This time around, there are minor updates to its facade highlighted by the red reflective heel tab featuring golden embroidery. Paying homage to CLOT’s Chinese heritage with a hit of red and gold, the shoes also come just in time for the 2021 Olympics.”
