x CLOT AIR MAX HAVEN
A new, collaborative effort between Nike and influential retail imprint CLOT focuses Edison Chen’s genre defying aesthetic sensibility on a unique, hybrid footwear design. The needs no introduction level iconic silhouette of the Air Max 97 is fused with a serious, deep cut from the Nike archives, the Nike Air Zoom Haven.
Originally part of the experimental, progressive Nike Alpha Project, which showcased cutting edge, technological innovations across a range of performance categories, the Air Zoom Haven was conceived of as a cocoon by designer Richard Clarke. Intended for cross-training, the ahead of its time design featured lightweight, mixed material, layered uppers. A distinguishing feature of the Air Zoom Haven, the nylon lace loops that wrapped around an external cage structure, allowed for a custom, lockdown fit that prefigured contemporary developments like Flywire.
The hybrid design keeps the overall shape of and features the full length Air unit from the 97, but reimagines the familiar design with the multi layered mesh, external support structure and nylon lace loops build of the Air Zoom Haven.
