Back in 2006, Hong Kong multi-hyphenate Edison Chen teamed up with legendary artist MC Yan and the Swoosh for the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 "Kiss Of Death". Made to celebrate the opening of China's first sneaker boutique, ACU, it's regarded by many as the holiest of grails, especially for sneakerheads over in Asia. Now, according to reputable sneaker insider @pyleaks, the three way collab is set to make a comeback, and here's everything that we know so far!
Inspired by the idea of "chi" which in Chinese culture is the vital life force that flows through the body, the "Kiss Of Death" has got to be one of the most unique AM1s in existence. With a beige, orange, and red colour scheme, pops of green also feature throughout for a striking pop of contrast.
Crafted predominantly of buttery smooth suede, you'll also find snakeskin on the Nike Swooshes and a dash of ostrich skin at the heel. Of course, we can't talk about the "KOD" without mentioning the transparent TPU panels that adorn the toe box, proudly showcasing the acupuncture-inspired insole within.
At this moment in time, pretty much nothing else is known about the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 "Kiss Of Death", but it's expected to drop sometime in 2021. Let us know if you'll be adding a pair to your collection, and while you're here, take your first look at G-Dragon's next PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 "Para-Noise"!
