15 years ago, CLOT collaborated with Nike and legendary artist MC Yan on a special Air Max 1 dubbed the “Kiss of Death,” doing so to celebrate the 2006 opening of ACU, China’s first sneaker boutique. According to sneaker leaker py_rates, the shoe is reportedly expected to make its grand return sometime next year.

The shoe pays tribute to CLOT’s Eastern roots and is inspired by “Chi,” the spiritual energy that flows through the human body and connects it with the universe, as well as the ancient Chinese art of pressure points. The shoe was initially dressed in a “Net/Deep Red-Orange Blaze” colorway and featured a suede base with a snakeskin Swoosh, ostrich skin on the heel, and a transparent TPU-like vamp. Nods to the human foot’s anatomy can be found on the pressure point-displaying insoles, as well as the lack of sock liners, allowing for the shoe to form more naturally to one’s foot.

Take a look at CLOT’s Nike Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death” above and expect these to hit shelves sometime during 2021 at select global retailers and Nike.com.

For more sneaker news, G-Dragon’s Nike Air Force 1 “Para-Noise” is returning in a new colorway for Holiday 2020.
