CLOT and Nike will release the 3rd piece of their Air Force 1 Pack. The new pair dubbed the CLOT AF1 “Rose Gold Silk” follows the “Black Silk” and “Royale University Blue Silk” iterations which were released last year.
AF1 “Rose Gold Silk”
The upcoming pair features a rose gold silk upper wrapped in traditional Chinese patterns. Just like on the other iterations of the pack, these cultural motifs provide texture to a shoe that might otherwise be considered mundane.
Other interesting details include the nude-colored leather midfoot Swooshes, the metallic gold lace lock, and the beige gum outsole, which offer subtle but powerful contrast.
Finally, special branding details appear on the insole and on the lower half of the shoe.
The Air Force 1 “Rose Gold Silk” offers a lighter hue compared to its predecessors. However, the sneaker’s message remains the same “Beauty can be found both inside and out”.
Take a closer look at the CLOT x Nike AF1 “Rose Gold Silk” in the gallery just below.

AF1 “Royale University Blue Silk”
The CLOT AF1 “Rose Gold Silk” release is accompanied by a short film featuring Donnie Yen, an actor and martial artist known for his role in the popular Ip Man series.
The video showcases Yen’s fluidity and grace, a nod to his mastery of the martial arts. Of course, you can see him wearing the upcoming AF1 sneaker, which totally makes sense…
Release Date CLOT AF1 Rose Gold Silk
The sneaker should be released on January 21 on JUICE.com and JUICE China. It will be released a few days later at JUICE Los Angeles, on the 25th.
