Converse and CLOT will issue a special release of the Converse One Star ’74 that cements the long-lasting collaboration between the two brands - lasting from 2012.

Edison Chen and Kevin Poon have established CLOT as one of the foremost names in global streetwear culture and as a brand known for bridging the gap between East and West.
This special edition of the Converse One Star sneaker hones in on the brand’s mission to creatively merge these two cultures: the Converse x CLOT One Star sneaker is an homage to all things Tai Chi and as well as the icon’s roots in popular culture via basketball, music and skate.

The shoe’s black upper and white outer collar in hairy suede mirrors the zen Chinese symbols for Inner Peace imprinted on the shoe’s insole and outer sole. Printed on both sides of the inner foxing is a quote of Confucian wisdom in Mandarin and its equal English translation. A plus point to this is the premium packaging with illustrations scrawled on top of a diagram of Tai Chi movements on the box lid.
