CLOT Reveals First-Ever Inline Sneaker, the PARABOLA

Inspired by geometric curves and Chinese philosophy’s yin-yang, the shoe boasts a minimal facade with wavy stitching.

After ending its nearly two-decade-long partnership with Nike last year, and following collaborative models like the CLOT adidas Superstar and the CLOT Crocs, Edison Chen’s Hong Kong-based label is beginning its solo footwear expedition. Enter the CLOT PARABOLA, the brand’s first-ever inline sneaker inspired by mathematics’ parabola curve and Chinese philosophy’s yin-yang.

Billed as “elevated streetwear,” the sneaker’s geometric moniker manifests on the side of its design, where curved stitching underscores the shoe’s comfort-first collar and contours its mudguard. Notably, the unabridged thread cuts into the midsole, creating a debossed component toward the back of the foot.

With a minimal approach to design, the PARABOLA’s tongue remains blank, and its heel similarly avoids labels. A signature “C” shape is cut into the silhouette’s profile with larger stitching, but the largest CLOT signage exists underfoot, where each half of the label’s circular commands the outsole on both feet.

At launch, the shoe is available to the public in an all-white colorway. The sneaker has also been done up in a mint tone, but it’s presently only available to friends and family.

The CLOT PARABOLA is now available to shop at select JUICE storefronts, with a wider digital release expected to come in May. Take a look at the design in the gallery above.
