CLOT has teamed up with Converse to remake the Fastbreak Mid, the classic basketball silhouette first introduced in 1983. The release of the shoe comes along with our '80 Degrees North' Fall 2017 collection where we pay homage to the hues and natural textures of the Arctic. This collaboration finds CLOT’s founders Edison Chen and Kevin Poon dabbling in the nostalgic vibe of 1980s sportswear, their love for the classic basketball shoe and the great outdoors. Lined in premium leather, a bright and durable textile upper, and accented with a suede Star Chevron logo, the CLOT Fastbreak Mid is a statement-making sneaker fit for the coldest climates.
THIS NEW TAKE ON THE FASTBREAK MID FUSES THIS ONCE BASKETBALL COURT-BOUND SNEAKER INTO A HEAVY-DUTY, ALL-WEATHER HYBRID.
The new shoes are constructed with waterproof leather and heavy fabric uppers provide two bold colour choices: Gravel/Halogen Blue/Pale Khaki and Royal Blue/Catawba Grape/Peat.
Inspired by Creative Director of CLOT, Edison Chen's trip to the Arctic, '80 Degrees North' explores the coldest parts of the Earth's surface. The collection features the natural textures found in glaciers, arctic camouflage stone patterns, polar bear motifs and unique patchwork reminiscent of adventurous explorers throughout history.

This season, CLOTTEE brings the ‘IMMIGRANT’ theme to the collection based on uniting people of the world rather than dividing. Building upon the previous season of UNSP, our collection attempts to “break down walls” that separate people from different backgrounds, race and cultures.
Through 80s and 90s nostalgic references, and new silhouettes the collection reminds us how to be inclusive and fun.
THERE ARE NO IMMIGRANTS, JUST PEOPLE WHEREVER WE ARE FROM. WE ARE ALL HUMANS.
