After weeks of teasing, we now have an official look at the fragment design x CLOT x Nike Air Force 1 “Black Silk” and some release details. Taking to Instagram, CLOT founders Edison Chen, Kevin Poon and Hiroshi Fujiwara to reveal what is hidden underneath the sequel to the popular Air Force 1 “Royale University Blue Silk.”
This time around the low-cut model features a black silk upper which continues the Silk Royale pattern which CLOT first used in 2007 and has been used in an array of its exclusive products and special collaborations. But under the silk outer layer is a premium red leather base etched with a fragment design thunderbolt take on the traditional Chinese-inspired pattern. The initial tonal look is continued on the perforated leather lining laces, eyelets and dubrae which also come in sleek black. Branding on the shoe comes in the form of midfoot Swooshes, tongue tags and “Nike Air” embroidery at the rear. Rounding up the collaboration is a clean white midsole paired with a contrasting gum rubber outsole.
