Teased throughout the better part of the past week, CLOT has yet another “K.O.D.” release in the works, this iteration a nod to one of the rarest colorways in the label’s repertoire. Rounding out an already eventful series — headed first by the OG and then the “CHA” subsequently — the upcoming “Solar Red” takes us all the way back to 2006 when Kanye West hit the “Touch The Sky” stage wearing an exclusive Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death.”
Presumed to be only several pairs in existence, the pink version of the collaboration has become something of a legend, with Ye’s name making it all the more coveted. What’s more, Nike ID offered the very same color options not long after, which forced the Swoosh to halt all production of the combo. Today, 15 years later, the shoe is finally making its way back, albeit with a few subtle changes. For starters, the heel is upgraded with a reflective finish and embroidered with gilded thread; below, the reflexology-themed prints make a return as well, complementing the insole’s own graphic. But elsewhere, everything is near true to the original, colored with pink and grey suedes and outfitted with a sheer mesh toe as well as an elegant “CLOT” debossing.
For a closer look, see below. Come July 20th, the “Solar Red” will release exclusively through JUICE locations worldwide both by way of an online and pop-up launch.
In other news, the Air Jordan 1 Electro Orange releases this weekend.
