Nike 1World Air Force 1 x CLOT
Born out of the traditional theme of luck, happiness, and prosperity, this pair resonates China's roots and the people's philosophy in life.
The Nike 1World campaign looked to CLOT's creativity and style in creating a pair just in time for Chinese New Year way back 2009.
It comes in a clear air max midsole which is not common for the shoe model. Comprised mostly of subtly patterned CLOT Chinese Royale red silk as the shoe's upper, it features a tear-away concept which makes it even more interesting.
The top layer can be removed by burning and cutting which will then reveal a second layer that features the same Chinese silk and details in a different color. This is said to be a nod to CLOT's own philosophy of going beyond the superficial to find deeper meanings. Well of course, we all know that true beauty lies within, don't we?✌️
To keep up with the Chinese New Year theme, it comes with three sets of shoelaces, black, yellow, and red, each having writing on them that wishes everyone a prosperous 2009.
It also comes in a Chinese Candy Box, a traditional method of packaging treats and sweets for the yearly celebration.
Arguably the best and innovative pair in the Nike 1World campaign.
