New Adidas Consortium in Store Saturday 2.15.14
Hong Kong’s CLOT is made up of childhood friends Kevin Poon and Edison Chen, whose brand encompasses music, fashion, design and PR services. Their streetwear designs have garnered them solid success, not to mention a number of collaborations with high-profile brands over the years.
For Stan Smith CLOT, Poon approached the shoe with the utmost respect by not straying too far from its clean and timeless silhouette. The black nubuck upper contrasts against metallic gold accents on the heel tab, tongue and ‘CLOT’ callout on the heel patch, giving it a sophisticated and eye-catching finish. Soft leather has been used to line the shoe, while the footbed features grip material in a repeated CLOT motif, preventing slippage for the wearer.
"I approached this shoe with the utmost respect by not straying too far from its clean and timeless silhouette. Like the original, I stuck with two colours and kept the design subtle. The exterior of the shoe is made from nubuck leather, which feels similar to suede and is resistant to wear, while the tongue and heel of the shoe is accented by metallic gold. In addition, we've added a sophisticated gold CLOT stamp along the heel side. One of the most unique attributes of the CLOT edition is the new addition of the grip material along the inside heel of the footbed, which prevents the persons heel from slipping out of the shoe when walking, especially when worn without socks. I am very excited to be part of the series!" -- Kevin Poon (CLOT)
The Stan Smith CLOT is the first of the Consortium Stan Smith Collaboration Pack.
