CLOT Continues its JORDAN BRAND Legacy With The Air Jordan XIV x CLOT “TERRACOTTA.”
Continuing CLOT and Nike’s long standing partnership and following several Jordan Brand collaborations with both CLOT and its co-founder Edison Chen, the next chapter in the CLOT x JORDAN BRAND legacy is the CLOT x Air Jordan XIV Low “Terracotta.”
Following 2018’s CLOT x Air Jordan 13 Low “Terracotta,” the new Air Jordan XIV Low “Terracotta” features several elements inspired by its predecessor. The upper is once again clad with a Terracotta Warrior armor plate, with a subtle nod to Michael Jordan through its side panel where dots appear in twos and threes. The shoe’s tongue is reminiscent of a traditional Chinese scroll, emblazoned with the words CLOT and JORDAN. On the sole are terracotta-colored accents complemented with light tan and grey. Finishing off the shoe are bold laces and a traditional Chinese knot and coin hanging off the heel. A classic symbol of “如意吉祥,” a Chinese idiom for prosperity and happiness, the added trinket is an ode to CLOT’s Chinese heritage and a token to bring luck to the game. In the campaign shot by Kenneth Cappello, CLOT co-founder Edison Chen wears the new shoes styled with the previous CLOT x Jordan Brand collaboration apparel items.
First debuted in 1998, the Air Jordan XIV features a Ferrari-influenced design inspired by Michael Jordan’s own love for motorsports. Design features include Zoom Air technology in its heel and forefoot and Phylon foam in its midsole.
Continuing to pay homage to his Chinese heritage, this Air Jordan collaboration is another homage to CLOT’s mission to bridge the East and the West. Infusing Chinese elements and ideas into this Jordan collaboration, the CLOT x Air Jordan XIV “Terracotta” is an ode to Chinese history, timelessness and Jordan’s love for the game. The Air Jordan XIV Low x CLOT “Terracotta” will be released on February 8, 2021. Stay tuned to CLOT and JUICE social media accounts for detailed release information.
