Where to buy the CLOT x Air Jordan Delta 2 “Flint” shoes? Price, release date and more details explored
The NBA legend’s shoe brand is gearing up to rock the sneaker market with a new take on the Air Jordan Delta 2, co-designed by luxury fashion label CLOT. Dubbed “Flint,” the pair’s design and color scheme are heavily influenced by the aesthetic of the previously released Air Jordan 13 colorway.
The soon-to-be-released CLOT x Air Jordan Delta 2 is set to release on September 2, 2022. With a retail price of $130 a pair, these shoes will ship through JUICE outlets as well as limited global retailers. Additionally, the clothing capsule, designed by Edison Chen, founder and creative director of CLOT, will also arrive alongside the shoes.
CLOT x Air Jordan Delta 2 Will Arrive In Flint Makeup With Navy And Gray Overlays
CLOT, the famous Hong Kong-based manufacturer, has worked with Michael Jordan’s sportswear brand for a long time. Previously, they revamped various Jumpman silhouettes including the Air Jordan 5, Air Jordan 14 Low, and Air Jordan 35, to name a few. This season, the two have worked together once again to unveil an all-new CLOT x Air Jordan Delta 2 “Flint” colorway. The most recent effort was inspired by the timeless Air Jordan 13 “Flint” colorway, as you can surely tell from its moniker.
Chen, the creative director of the Hong Kong-based luxury fashion brand, shared how he looked to the past and shaped the new sneaker designs,
“I think it’s very important to be able to look to the past but translate it into something new, and not make a literal copy of it,”
He further added,
“For me respect was only going one way towards elders, but now in the digital age there has to be mutual respect because we know things they don’t know. We need to recognize both to understand exactly what is going on in the world.
The Air Jordan 13 served as the concept design for the Jordan Delta 2, and the Flint color blocking of popular shoes clearly influenced this collaboration.
The top of the Flint version features reflective mesh grooves and is surrounded by white leather and gray suede overlays. The red rope used to tie a hang tag labeled CLOT with the Air Jordan 13 hologram is inspired by traditional Chinese characteristics.
The Jumpman is on the right tab, while the University Blue CLOT logo appears to be on the left tab of the white skin. Additionally, University Blue tones are also noticeable on the upper eyelets as well as the rear heel tabs.
React foam, built into the white and navy midsole for all-day cushioning, completes the shoe.
In addition to the shoes, an exclusive clothing capsule will be offered by the duo. The fashion brand has worked perfectly on woven pants, woven jackets and beanies which have been teased by the fashion brand on its IG account.
Edison Chen also explained how the idea for this new collaborative sneaker came to him.
“At the time, the AJ13 had a panel that covered the shoe, and that made a lasting impression on me. When I saw the Delta 2 with a large panel on it, I thought, ‘This is the perfect opportunity to take my turn on the shoe, “”
Add a reminder to your calendars for the upcoming CLOT x Air Jordan Delta 2 which will come with a matching apparel capsule. Starting September 2, you will be able to purchase these limited-edition pieces. They will be accessible through a few affiliated JUICE outlets as well as on JUICESTORE.com.
