Almost two decades and countless sneakers later, CLOT and Nike are reportedly parting ways. And while the Hong Kong-born streetwear label is bound to begin an entirely new legacy — possibly with the Three Stripes — it’s unlikely anyone will ever forget their days with the Swoosh.

History-of-Clot-And-Nike

Founded by Edison Chen and Kevin Poon, CLOT has been working closely with the entirety of the Nike umbrella ever since 2006, the year the two debuted their very first project: the Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death.” Thus would begin one of the longest-running collaborative partnerships in footwear.

With the release of the “What The CLOT,” Edison Chen and his team looked back on a total of 17 past releases. For posterity, we’re taking a deeper dive into the history of CLOT and Nike, highlighting the sneakers they’ve crafted with not only the Swoosh but also the Jumpman.

CLOT’s relationship with Nike dates all the way back to 2006 with the Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death.” Arguably one of the most sought after releases in the history of the sneaker itself, the collaboration was the third pair in Nike record to feature a see-through element. What’s more, it introduced the world to the Hong Kong-based streetwear label’s “East meets West” ethos, borrowing cues from the Chinese practice of foot reflexology.

Towards the tail end of 2006, CLOT designed a very special rendition of the Nike Air Max 1 “Kiss of Death” for none other than Kanye West. Worn by the artist during the Hong Kong stop in his “Touch the Sky” tour, the pair forgoed the see-through toe box for a dark charcoal mesh and dressed the adjacent panels in bright pinks and infrared. Only four pairs were produced — two went to Ye, two went to Edison Chen.
