CLOT and NIKE, Inc. have delivered several compelling collaborations over the last two decades. Tomorrow, their Nike CLOTEZ arrives in the Cortez’s original “White,” “Game Royal,” and “University Red” color scheme.
Widely associated with Tom Hanks’ character in Forrest Gump, the three color arrangement animates Edison Chen and team’s three-in-one overhaul of the 51-year-old Nike Cortez. Another blend between East and West, the CLOTEZ expands on the work started by Harry Wong’s submission to the “Nike: On Air” platform in 2018. The third kung-fu shoe-reminiscent design, however, forgoes any “yin-and-yang” color scheme in favor of a style unequivocally “Los Angeles.” The result is a shoe that’s familiar, but refreshing enough to push the Cortez into its next half-century.
Enjoy detailed photos of the pair ahead, as you wait to secure your size via Nike SNKRS for $150 USD tomorrow, April 14.
