Set to accompany the CLOT x Air Jordan 14 Low “Terracotta,” the Air Jordan 35 “Warrior Jade” serves to continue CLOT founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon‘s mission to bridge the East and the West. The latest in the streetwear mainstay’s ongoing long-standing partnership with Nike/Jordan Brand, the highly-limited release introduces a focus on Chinese Jade.
The standout element on the CLOT x Air Jordan 35 “Warrior Jade” is the innovative Eclipse Plate embedded in the Zoom Air sole unit colored to replicate the green jade associated with the prized and timeless symbol of Chinese culture. Building on the durability, purity, beauty and auspicious nature of the ornamental mineral, the Plate is framed by red Flywire that leads into the upper. The upper of the shoe features premium gray suede accented by netting and matching nubuck. Aside from the debossed details at the heel, the shoe is marked by gold-tone eyelets, Jumpman embroidery at the tongue, extended tongue tags, “CLOT” and “JORDAN” debossed at the vamp, branded hangtags and printed insoles.
Priced at $1,599 HKD/¥1,599 RMB/$6,200 NTD (approximately $200 USD), the CLOT x Air Jordan 35 “Warrior Jade” are set to release on JUICE’s website and at special JUICE pop-up locations in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Taichung and Taipei February 8, with a wider release at select retailers below February 11.
