Nike and CLOT have linked up once again for the CLOT x Nike Zoom Tennis Classic. The Nike CLOT Tennis Classic AC TZ was created with the concept of creating a “future throwback of now.” CLOT creatively uses metallic silver on the upper part of the shoe with the CLOT red on the stitching of the Nike swoosh and heel tap. The red symbolizes good luck in Chinese culture. Each pair is hand-buffed to create a worn-in effect and is essentially one-of-a-kind. All finishing touches are also done by hand.
Edison Chen, co-founder of CLOT says, “The tennis classic was a shoe I have liked since Nike started doing the NSW line. This shoe fits in with our concept, which is a look back at the shoes and how we interpret them today in 2012.” Chen adds, “Maybe 50 years from now they will still be sought after because of its originality. I hope this becomes a reality and one day it is in a museum all used and torn and worn. We want to give you this futuristic experience now with a touch of Chinese craft and wit.”
The CLOT x Nike Zoom Tennis Classic is set to release later this Spring.
