TBT: Nike Air Force 1 CLOT Giving Us All the Silky Feels!
We love sneakers with an air of luxury to them. That’s why when we heard about the Nike x CLOT collaboration, we couldn’t help the excitement! And the collaboration didn’t stop at just one pair of sneakers, but several ones! Their most famous releases are the Air Force 1 CLOT in different colorways. So let’s check them out and you can choose your favorite!
Air Force 1 CLOT 1World
Nike and CLOT’s first collaboration was a connection between the east and west. And that’s precisely what CLOT aims for: building a bridge between cultures since 2003! The kicks featured a red sulk upper with Chinese prints. However, the best part about it is the leather under the silk that wears off. The kicks came in two different packagings. The first was a normal package without any extras. The other one though is a hexagonal shaped box with several different shoelaces. The release was a Hong-Kong exclusive and the stock number was pretty low! And speaking of eastern feels and kicks, did you check out the upcoming Jordan 4 Sashiko?

It’s Uphill from There!
The Air Force 1 CLOT collab made a pretty cool reputation for itself as an exotic pair of sneakers. So Nike and CLOT took it upon themselves to recreate the kicks in different colorways and packages. Let’s take a look at them right now.
White Air Force 1 CLOT
We waited 9 years for another release, but it definitely was worth it! The kicks came back in a white colorway with all the same details and patterns. The kicks were a part of Nike’s “100” line that commemorates white Air Force 1s.
Release Date: 2/1/2018
Retail Price: $200

Blue Silk AF1 CLOT
Release Date: 11/11/2019
Retail Price: $250
Avg. Resale Value: $458
Fragment Design Air Force 1 Clot
Two pairs in one year is a pretty rare feat! But that doesn’t stop there, because the second pair is a three-way collaboration between Nike, CLOT, and Fragment. So with Hiroshi Fujiwara (Fragment), Edison Chen, and Kevin Poon (CLOT) on board, we’re set! The kicks feature nothing new in terms of design, but the colorway is black. The same tear-away upper is there, along with a gum-colored outsole. Finally, a little extra that we love is the Fragment design on the red leather underneath the silk.

In 2020, We Go Pink!
Copping Air Force 1 CLOT Kicks Is A Good Idea!
So, it’s probably too late for older kicks, but who knows what 2021 holds? So here’s a quick tip for the future, we never really know if we’ll get a new Air Force 1 CLOT. But let’s leave our options open. And if we do get a new drop, you definitely need to jump on board and get yourself a pair, or more. As we have seen, flipping the kicks would make at least double the retail you paid… so, easy money! But you’ll definitely need an awesome sneaker bot to get them for you, and that’s AIO V2!
