The truest of multi-hyphenates to grace the streets of Hong Kong, actor-turned-musician-turned-designer Edison Chen continues to amp up his partnership with Nike, following up the trio of Air Max 97 Havens with an equally colorful though doubly regal CLOT x Air Force 1. Infusing his label’s street-influenced design language with some staple lifestyle elements, the pair comes adorned with a signature white midsole and gum bottom to balance out its much louder upper. Hits of a luxe silk fabrications almost completely outfit the construction from toe to heel with no deviance from its Royal Blue palette. Swooshes contrast by just a tad through smooth leathers with branded tabs featuring a similarly standout note through its neutrals while the rest of the core panelling ornament with various etchings akin to a hand-embroidered textile a king’s garb. Likely featuring graphic insoles and surely set to receive an imaginative installation, expect more from this pair down the road and keep it locked for word on their official Nike.com release.
