An Ode to Classics : CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Grey" to Release on October 7!
Born of a vision between CLOT Founder Edison Chen and sacai founder Chitose Abe, this ambitious three-way collaboration between CLOT, sacai and Nike marks the first time that these game-changing brands have partnered together. The joint venture demonstrates the creative synergies between the minds of Edison and Chitose, marking a longstanding partnership that has inspired and innovated for all those involved.
This highly anticipated double release from CLOT and sacai comprises two new colorways of the sacai-exclusive silhouette—the Nike LD Waffle, the CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Orange" and CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Grey".
The new additions take inspiration from two archival colorways from CLOT, resulting in a dynamic fusion with sacai’s signature aesthetic that pushes the boundaries of sneaker design.
Following the release of the "Orange" colorway, CLOT has teamed up with sacai and Nike once again to splice and reassemble iconic moments in history, bringing forth the CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Grey" which is scheduled to release worldwide on October 7.
The brand new colorway draws inspiration from the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 SP “Kiss of Death” Hyperfuse edition, notably released in 2013. In celebration of the classic "Kiss of Death" trilogy, CLOT co-founder and Creative Director pays tribute to the legendary sneaker by remixing original elements and highlighting them on the exclusive LDWaffle silhouette. The design serves as an ode to one of CLOT's classics, the CLOT x sacai x Nike LDWaffle "Grey" features a combination of obsidian grey, green and navy hues, complemented with a speckled midsole. The breathable mesh upper is supported by a seamless toecap - by recalling elements from the Hyperfuse edition, the overall construction of the shoe is streamlined for a contemporary aesthetic, merging its storied legacy with the present to create new and previously unimagined combinations with CLOT's partnership with sacai.
The grey colorway is set to release on October 7 at JUICE and sacai locations worldwide. Both will be featured at the CLOT x sacai “The Home” pop-ups around the world. Stay tuned to CLOT and JUICE social media channels for detailed release information.
