CLOT Founder and Creative Director, Edison Chen worked with aspiring designer Harry Wong to create a 3-in-1 design inspired by the Yin-Yang philosophy. The Yin-Yang symbol is reimagined as a transformable design that abridges a Tai Chi shoe-inspired silhouette. The accompanying slip-on to be worn on the inner shoe comes in matte black. While the outdoor detachable sneaker is pure white with a black accent of the Nike signature logo.

The Yin-Yang philosophy lies at the ancient martial art's core, now attached to the CLOTEZ through the dominance of black and white colorways. Yup, it's obviously full of black and white colors in it. Enhancing the martial art function as in the legendary Tai Chi slip-on you've seen on film. Reflected the CLOT's concern to preserve the fundamental Chinese cultural heritage.
