Continuing its collaborative relationship with Nike/Jordan Brand, CLOT is adding a new chapter to its ongoing story of cultural excavation with the CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low “Jade.” Taking a closer look at the team-up, we get a better idea of how the prized mineral of China inspired the shoe. The take on the classic court model builds on jade’s representation of beauty, protection, power and eternity, while highlighting the passion of technique required to craft with the resilient material.

The CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low “Jade” features brilliant black satin uppers accented by reflective tongue tongues and jade-inspired ornaments. The signature AJ5 lace lock expresses the translucent beauty of jade with glow-in-the-dark qualities and “2-3” jade beats arranged on the lacing system. Additional detailing comes in the form of “23” embroidered in Chinese at the heels, glow-in-the-dark midfoot netting, special red laces, printed insoles and contrasting red sockliners.

Elevating the shoe are black Air-assisted midsoles with speckled metallic silver shark teeth designs and branded glow-in-the-dark rubber midsoles. Each shoe comes complete with a special Jordan Brand shoebox expressing the color and pattern of jade.

Additionally, CLOT and Jordan Brand have come together for an accompanying apparel capsule collection. Comprised of a hoodie, T-shirt and sweatpants, the special range features elements inspired by traditional Chinese jade accessories, exploring contemporary renditions of the age-old ornament.

Priced at $200 USD, the CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low “Jade” and accompanying Jordan Brand capsule collection will be available at JUICE locations May 14.
