Chinese creative agency CLOT has had some rather strange Nike collaborations throughout its tenure teaming up with the Swoosh. Their most recent Nike creation brought back the oft-forgotten gel Swoosh branding on the Nike Lunar Force 1 in honor of the imprint’s 10th Anniversary, but the magic really started back in 2006 thanks to an homage to the human foot’s anatomy and the ancient Chinese art of pressure points. The CLOT Nike Air Max 1 Kiss of Death is one of Nike Sportswear’s strangest creations over the past decade, and they have CLOT and legendary Chinese recording artist MC Yan to thank for the creation. The shoe’s most notable feature is what made this Nike Air Max 1 stand out and stand the test of time: transparent see-through toeboxes!
We got our hands on the ultra rare CLOT Nike Air Max 1 Kiss of Death for our latest Classics Unboxed in which we get a look at all of the intricate details of this “East meets West” theme. Not only are the sock liners nonexistent, but the special packaging included anatomical arch supports, a unique booklet, and premium suede and ostrich hits throughout the eclectic colorway. Check out the full video below and stay tuned for more Classics Unboxed right here on Sneaker News every Thursday.
