Kazuki Kuarishi’s adidas Originals by Originals campaign has slowed to a trickle but the model that’s been arguably his biggest success is just too good not to keep releasing in new colorways.  Pictured above is the third kzkLOT x adidas Originals Superstar 80s, and though these don’t have the same ‘Breathe’ nickname as the original black design, their mesh upper construction means these are every bit the “breathable shoes for the hot days of Hong Kong or nowadays LA,” Edison Chen described back at the project’s nexus in 2010.  Check out this new blue edition, let us know how it compares to the white and black pairs and be ready for these to arrive at Juice on June 22nd with select retailers to follow in July.

Inside Edison Chen’s Sneaker Closet

May 23rd, 2012 by | 53 comments

edison chen sneaker closet 1 Inside Edison Chens Sneaker Closet

For those of you who aren’t in ‘the know’, a quick overview of the man known as Edison Chen: He has more sneakers than you. In all seriousness, to say Edison Chen is a jack-of-all-trades would be a severe understatement; he acts, sings, produces, builds businesses, and designs gear, and it’s still yet to be confirmed if he doubles as a costumed crime-fighter in the night. He’s the founder of CLOT, a name that sneakerheads have become very familiar with thanks to his countless collaborations with major footwear brands like Nike and Converse, so you can imagine his sneaker closet is rather jam-packed with heat. Well, you don’t have to imagine as much anymore, because he just gave us a quick look into his sneaker closet via his Instagram – a picture that has garnered over 10,000 ‘Likes’ from his countless followers.

CLOT x Nike Tennis Classic AC TZ – Releasing @ UNDFTD

May 9th, 2012 by | 5 comments

clot nike tennis classic museum undftd 6 CLOT x Nike Tennis Classic AC TZ   Releasing @ UNDFTD

To say Nike Sportswear is selective with its collaborations would be an understatement, but there’s a reason why Hong Kong-based CLOT gets involved in these types of projects. Their most recent cooperative work with NSW was the Tennis Classic dubbed the ‘Museum’, which featured a CLOT-POV on what a sneaker would look like if it were decades old. Of course, one wouldn’t be buying a moldy, tattered pair of kicks, but a 2012 issue in that beat-up style that gives the shoe a distinct character. These were an extremely limited release with 21 Mercer being the lone U.S. release point (the TZ, not the suede version), but it’s been confirmed that UNDFTD’s chapter stores will carry the CLOT x Tennis Classic (a release has been originally set for this Friday, May 11th, but has since been postponed), so take a quick look below for a refresher and we’ll keep you updated on the finalized release date.

CLOT x Nike Tennis Classic AC LTR QS – Release Info

The Museum Edition has come and gone as a Juice-exclusive release in Hong Kong only last month, but that doesn’t mean US sneakerheads will necessarily have to resort to the resale market to get your hands on a pair of CLOT x Nike Tennis Classics.  The suede Quickstrike is set to arrive soon at the best Nike Sportswear retailers, where on March 10th their nappy red-on-grey design will be unleashed in limited quantities.  They don’t have the wearaway potential that the Museums offered, but these are equally excellent in bridging the gap between this model’s 1970s origins today’s hottest trends.  Check them out in more detail after the jump and get ready for the Saturday drop at spots like Atlanta’s Wish.

CLOT x Nike Sportswear Tennis Classic AC TZ

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.

CLOT x Nike Tennis Classic Museum AC TZ – New Images

In describing the CLOT x Nike Tennis Classic Suede that’s set to release, we noted that while they’re not built in the same style as their spectacular 1World Air Force 1 Lows, there is indeed a ‘Museum’ version that seems to have multiple possible appearances.  How this glossy look appears to you will depend strongly upon the lighting where its seen, but even more so upon the extent to which they’ve been hand crafted.  You see, one in five pairs of the Tennis Classic AC TZ ‘Museum’ will be hand-finished and individually by CLOT, but it looks like they’ll only be available at Hong Kong’s Juice on the February 22nd release date.  Stick with Sneaker News for word on the suede version, and let us know which ones you’d pick.  via The Hundreds

Celebrity Feet: Michelle Obama – CLOT x Converse Chuck Taylor ‘Handshake’

February 2nd, 2012 by | 12 comments

We already know that President Obama is on board with the Jumpman, but does the First Lady rock heat as well? Apparently more prone to lifestyle sneakers, Michelle Obama was recently spotted on-air with Ellen Degeneres rocking the CLOT x Converse Chuck Taylor ‘Handshake’. The Converse Chuck Taylor is obviously a very popular sneaker, so normally this wouldn’t be notable, but the fact that she showed up on the set with a collabo pair from one of Asia’s biggest footwear forces certainly hints at some deeper knowledge of the game, or at least a good stylist. Are Barack and Michelle Obama America’s first presidential sneakerhead couple? Is Joe Biden getting a pair of Nike Air Yeezy’s 2 before they drop? Stay tuned with Sneaker News for all the answers and check the photos after the jump. via Rick Williams
