In a world where tissue paper and a cardboard box are the norm, CLOT's careful consideration of how their collaborations are presented is more than applause-worthy. Take for instance the Nike Lunar Force 1 that just dropped today. If you haven't seen the packaging, prepare to be simultaneously bowled over and upset at missing out on it. Upon seeing the initial product shots of the release, we had to make this model our Sneaker of the Week.

The shoe itself is already dope enough with its white-fused upper, gum outsole and jewel swoosh sitting dead center, but it’s the box that has whipped us up into a frenzy. The sneakers come housed in a fake CLOT Alumni book with a red cover and gold trim, complete with a certificate, dust bag and patches -- thorough is an understatement here folks. But you've got to treat the 10-year anniversary in a special manner so it's not that much of a stretch that they'd go all out for this drop.

Needless to say this release is flying off of the shelves at CLOT right now. If you haven't got a pair with the special edition packaging, it may be quiet for you. Don't fret though; chances are that if you only want the shoes, they'll be available soon through other outlets, just sans packaging.
