Who said man was not meant to fly? Well, Michael Jordan certainly proved to everyone wrong that he indeed can fly! And now, 35 years after his collaboration with Nike started, Jordan Brand is releasing the Fearless Ones collection. This collection is a tribute to Jordan’s long career that inspired many many people around the world. The stars of this pack are the Air Jordan 1 mid collabs. The most interesting one though is CLOT’s Edison Chen x Air Jordan 1 mid collaboration.

CLOT is a streetwear brand founded by Edison Chen and Kevin Poon. Its aim is to create a bridge between the eastern and western cultures through clothes and shoes, and what’s a better option to do that other than the American Nike? This collab is not their first and hopefully won’t be the last!

This collaboration will be out on December 7th, 2019 and it’s actually the last to release among the Fearless pack. The kicks will retail for $140. More expensive than your average Air Jordan 1 mid huh? Well, this price is not really random.

Edison Chen’s take on the Air Jordan 1 Mid resembles the one we’ve seen on the previous Clot x Nike collabs. The sneakers’ upper is a white silk with eastern iconographic embroidery. The new elements in these kicks are the dubrae, which features a chinese token that spells out “Jordan”, and the swoosh embroidery that changes in density to create an optical illusion!

Now, to the part we’re all excited about! The upper can actually be burnt or cut to reveal another leather design underneath to add a nice touch of customization.

This type of design is not uncommon with the Edison Chen x Nike collabs. Before the Air Jordan 1 mid there were very nice designs that went under the radar for some! Let’s take a look at all of them.

CLOT x Nike Collabs: A History

A lot of collabs happened between these two, but we are going to highlight the best collabs to date!

Air Force 1 Low “1World” CLOT

Let’s go back a decade and remember! Back in January 2009, Nike and Edison Chen’s CLOT to release the 1World Air Force1 collab. The kicks featured a red silk tearable upper that reveals another color underneath.

Nine years and a month later, the second edition of the 1World CLOT collab saw the light. This time, an all white pair of Air Force 1s featured a white silk upper and cream white midsoles and swoosh logo. The upper is also customizable, and once you burn or tear the all-white silk top, you’ll get a white and gold leather one!

CLOT x Air Force 1 low  “Blue Silk”

The latest collaboration between Nike, Edison Chen and Kevin Poon aka CLOT gave us the third rendition of the Air Force 1. The blue silk upper just gives a royal feeling to the kicks. However, the best thing is that you can also customize this pair by burning or tearing the blue silk. That will reveal a very interesting grey layer that will and cool to your royalty!
