Editor’s Notes: Nike and Hong Kong’s CLOT follow up their Air Force 1 “Blue Silk” with a new black iteration. The latest offering is a three-way collaboration with Japanese streetwear label fragment design.
The regal colorway saw its first release on November 22, at an exclusive drop in Tokyo’s Shibuya Parco, where the shoe immediately sold out. Following that drop, CLOT has announced on its blog that the sneaker will be released at various Juice Store locations. The exact details for the drop are available on the social media channels of the respective stores (check out the full announcement below).
On this episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by LL Cool J, where we discuss his current projects and LL shares his thoughts on the shoes and how the recent announcement of adidas and Prada’s collab shows that classic hip-hop is culture. Listen below.
