What We’re Saying: Edison Chen, Kevin Poon, and CLOT have a treat for fans of the Air Max 1 "Kiss of Death." After bringing back the iconic collaboration earlier in the year, and following it up with an alternate colorway, the lifestyle brand has yet another variation on the way. The new "Solar Red" iteration of the Air Max 1 "K.O.D." was first teased on Instagram, as CLOT now gives us a full, detailed look at the shoe, along with coinciding launch information.

The third and final release from the K.O.D. trilogy, the "Solar Red" rendition is directly inspired by an extremely exclusive Air Max 1 “Kiss Of Death” designed for Kanye West and worn during his “Touch The Sky” tour stop in Hong Kong in 2006. With only a handful of pairs in existence, sneakerheads took to Nike's now-defunct NIKEiD platform to customize the pink Air Max 1 in a similar color palette, leading the sportswear brand to ultimately cease production of that specific scheme.

Now, the shoe is back with a few minor twists, including a reflective red heel tab with golden embroidery, a nod to CLOT's Chinese heritage. While the "Solar Red" pair incorporates the foot reflexology and pressure points influences from previous K.O.D. designs, the sole moderately differs, however, featuring a black and white footprint. The upper of the Air Maxes then showcases neon pink paneled construction, with a silver mudguard embossed with CLOT branding on the side.

CLOT originally released the Air Max 1 "Kiss of Death" in 2006, as it has become one of the most sought-after Air Max collaborations in the years since. This new colorway of the sneaker closes the chapter on the celebrated project, with a release that is scheduled for July 20, exclusively at JUICE locations worldwide, online, and at special pop-up activations.
