Three's the charm for CLOT and Nike's Cortez collab, which has surfaced in a third colorway that's like a box of chocolates (Forrest Gump fans will understand).
As rumored, the CLOT x Nike Cortez, or "CLOTEZ," is expected to arrive on April 7 in OG White, Game Royal, and University Red, commonly known as the "Forrest Gump" colorway (after the shoes worn by Tom Hanks' character in the comedy-drama).
CLOT co-founder Edison Chen teased the forthcoming drop on Instagram on March 16, even quoting the movie's famous line: "Run, Forrest! Run!"
Chen doesn't give too much away in the Instagram post, merely teasing half of the collaborative shoe inspired by martial arts' footwear.
Following the OG pair's footsteps, the latest CLOTEZ sees red strike the heel tab and Swoosh on the upper. That familiar blue hits on the midsole, while white takes over elsewhere.
CLOT is fresh off the release of its yellow and black Cortez sneakers, which landed on March 10. Now, roughly a week later, the Forrest Gump iteration emerges. The CLOT boys aren't wasting any time.
It looks like the initial rumors were true regarding the CLOTEZ's colorways. The black and white? Check. The Bruce Lee's? Yep. Now, the Forrest Gump's? Coming right up.
For those interested in copping the third and final CLOTEZ drop, the CLOT x Nike Cortez "Forrest Gump" sneakers hit Juice's website on April 7, with in-store raffles starting on April 3.
