“Dragon motifs have always shown up in our designs. It’s mystical, it demands power, and it’s very representative of Chinese culture,” says CLOT Founder and Creative Director, Edison Chen. “The embroidery is very much an ode to hand-stitch culture back in the day, and abstractly also tattoo culture, because it seems to have translated into Chinese tattoos where dragons and all those old motifs are showing up on people’s tattoo artworks.”
Dropping in two colorways, Wheat and Black, the upper features embroidery inspired by a growling dragon’s head. CLOT and Timberland co-branding is debossed on the lateral side of the heel with the boat shoe using eco-innovative materials which include 34% recycled rubber on the lugged outsoles and Better leather from a silver-rated tannery for environmental practices.
“Every step of this design partnership with CLOT has been amazing,” said Chris McGrath, vice president, global footwear design & development for Timberland. “To bring the essence of our two brands to life in a collection that is both authentic and progressive was a true creative adventure.”
