CLOT BRINGS THE ICONIC CLOT X NIKE AIR MAX 1 “K.O.D.” BACK FOR 15TH ANNIVERSARY
The original CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “KISS OF DEATH” was released in 2006 and was CLOT’s first-ever Nike footwear collaboration. Inspired by CLOT’s mantra to bridge the East and the West, the shoe featured premium materials and a design inspired by foot reflexology and its pressure points, a traditional Chinese medicine philosophy. Its innovative construction featured a deconstructed style and see-through toe cap. The unique design has solidified the “KISS OF DEATH” as one of the most highly sought-after sneakers, even to this day.

For Air Max Day 2021, 15 years after the original release of the “KISS OF DEATH,” CLOT is re-releasing the elusive sneaker. With an updated construction, the new “K.O.D.” pays homage to the original and maintains the OG’s colorway and deconstructed style with a brand-new perforated toe cap that’s still see-through. Subtle changes to the shoe's upper include a reflective red heel tab and updated graphics for the insole and outsole.
For the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D.”, we’ve enlisted 4PK’s Chef in the campaign further highlighting the sneaker’s Chinese traditional medicine inspirations. With a customized shoebox that also highlights this theme, the updated CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D.” is an update to CLOT’s iconic first Nike collaboration.
