CLOT Morphs the Converse Chuck Taylor 70 into a Panda

With fur and all.


[Update 3 Nov] A release date of 11th November has officially been announced with an additional Jack Purcell OX joining the lineup. The CLOT x Converse Jack Purcell OX features a hair-on-hide upper, faux fur tongue and rubber toe cap in white shades. Check out the latest campaign images of the CLOT x Converse Panda Pack before they are made available for purchase via Juice stores worldwide for a retail price of $120 and $130 respectively.


After the unveiling of an “Altered Beast” FW2022 collection, Edison Chen’s CLOT is dedicating a month-long campaign to pandas as a way to commemorate International Panda Day in China. The founder puts it best: “Being able to do something to give love and gain awareness for panda in response to WWF is very important and a part of the new CLOT aesthetic, which is loving and trying to preserve the earth so that the future can enjoy its beauty”.

Given that going the extra mile is encoded into the brand’s DNA, CLOT has also created a furry panda mascot Ning Ning that would lead the project, which comes complete with the standard fuzzy black/white look and CLOT’s logo stamped in its left eye. Joining the Hong Kong-based label in this panda-programme is Converse, which has offered up its Chuck Taylor 70 Hi for literal furrification.

Furthering the Panda Dunks that have captured the hearts of youths, this CLOT x Converse Chuck Taylor 70 takes the panda imitation to greater heights with a white furry upper. Notably, each side of the shoe features a differently textured fuzz — one side looks neatly brushed while the other is wool-like. Converse’s standard All-Star patch is buried under all the hair and appears to be like a spot on a panda’s back, complementing the solid black tongue. A translucent toe cap discreetly rounds out the look.

No official release dates have been released, but we expect it to drop in November given the month-long campaign run. In the meantime, why not check out the available pictures featured on Edison Chen’s Instagram (aptly accompanied by Desiigner’s iconic Panda lyrics).

In other Converse collaborations, Stüssy has stitched its eight ball onto the Chucks and Ox Star.
