Collaborations by Nike always catch us by surprise, unless it’s with CLOT of China, who has developed quite the relationship with Nike Sportswear to the point where we can almost expect a partnership to arise at least once a year. For this 2012 output, CLOT co-founder Edison Chen selected the Nike Tennis Classic, calling it one of his favorite NSW models and envisioning it as part of a Nike museum exhibit fifty years down the line. That explains the ‘worn’ look (not the yellowed VNTG treatment that has been the subject of outcry), which is a depiction of a year 2012 perspective on one of Nike’s oldest shoes in the archives. These will release this Spring 2012 so check out the detailed gallery of the CLOT x Nike Sportswear Tennis Classic AC TZ below and we’ll keep you in tune with release information and other updates.
