One of the earliest cooperative projects between Nike and Hong-Kong based CLOT, the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 "Kiss of Death" was released back in 2006 with a retail price of only $100. The CLOT AM1 was truly a unique design using materials and construction that had rarely or never been seen before. Starting with the build itself, the CLOT Air Max was more deconstructed than its counterparts, as it did not include a sock liner, and instead, was only the shell of a typical AM1. Additionally, the CLOT AM1 upper was constructed of traditional suede, genuine snakeskin, and unusual ostrich skin. The CLOT Air Max 1 upper also featured a transparent plastic toe box, which was used for only the third time in Nike history. The insole depicts the foot's "pressure points" mapped out on a grid-like pattern. This May, 2006, release was introduced during an invite-only celebration hosted by CLOT. Extremely rare, the Kiss of Death Air Max also includes a special fold-out box with ribbon ties. Overall, the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 "Kiss of Death" remains one of the most desired Air Max 1s of all time, as the KOD AM1 used premium materials and a unique build to culminate an East-meets-West design.
