Inspired by the AJ13: CLOT x Jordan Delta 2
Going back to 1997, and taking it back to the future like Marty and Doc.
[Update 2 Sep] The CLOT x Jordan Delta 2 has been released on JUICE while a wider release on SNKRS is still pending. It also seems that the pair has an accompanying apparel. In any case, should they run out in their stores, you can expect to find it in the SNKRDUNK App!
CLOT has long enjoyed the shade of the Nike umbrella, having built an impressive body of work with the Swoosh, the Star, and the Jumpman. Further cementing their partnership, co-founder Edison Chen pays tribute to one of his favourite Jordans, the most-iconic 13s. This time he gets to sample its DNA and infuse it into a contemporary model creating a retrofuturistic silhouette in the Jordan Delta 2.
The collaborative pair adopts the same colour palette as its inspiration. The upper’s built over a white leather base overlaid with a navy blue 3M, reflective ballistic mesh; while grey accents are applied onto the cushioned React sole and heel. University blue addresses the branding elements on the alternating logos on the tongue, the “CLOT” imprint on the medial, and the pull tabs on the heel collar.
Speaking of his MO this time around, Edison Chen said: “I thought working on this silhouette would be a nice break from doing performance-related sneakers, especially with the Jordan Brand. A lot of people are buying sneakers and leaving them at home. I want to make a sneaker that people use. You can wear it and do whatever you want.”
The CLOT x Jordan Delta 2 is set for a 2nd September drop at select JUICE retail locations and website. A wider release is expected to follow on SNKRS and particular Jordan Brand retailers.
It wasn’t long ago since they worked together on the CLOT × Nike Air Jordan 5 Low. Have you seen it yet? Check it out, don’t be a bumba-CLOT.
