CLOT Finally Serve the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Kiss of Death – Cha’
Following all the hubbub surrounding the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 ‘Kiss of Death’ retro back in March, the second phase of this collaboration in the form of the ‘Cha’ is finally set for a wider release. Official images of this clear-toed AM1 have been doing the rounds for a couple of months now, so it will be interesting to see whether consumers have grown accustomed to the unconventional material treatment.
This ‘Cha’ colourway was first developed during the sampling process of the original KOD, which is believed to have gone through dozens of rounds of revisions. Unlike the beige and orange final version, this brown variant takes a more tonal approach, with caramel suede uppers paired to a darker chocolate mudguard. The red Swoosh and heel embroidery detail eventually carried over to the other KOD, so it’s cool to see the work in progress. Not to mention the see-through toe box and reflexology-inspired detailing in the insole and iced outsole.
At this stage, the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 ‘Kiss of Death – Cha’ will be releasing directly via Juice Store on May 21. However, like the KOD retro, there is a likelihood the ‘Cha’ will release at international boutiques shortly after.
