The CLOT x Nike ‘Forrest Gump’ collaboration is more than just a sneaker drop – it’s a cultural phenomenon that’s taking the world by hail. Fragments designed by the iconic movie, this kick is a true work of art that combines style, comfort, and quality in one epic package and also gives a retro vibe.
But how did this sneaker take birth? The answer lies in the history of Hollywood and its influence on the sneaker hobby. The movie industry has always been a source of inspiration for sneakerheads, with iconic films like Forrest Gump influencing the design and innovation of some of the most famous kicks of all time. And with the CLOT x Nike ‘Forrest Gump’ release, that influence has come full circle, with a sneaker that pays homage to the movie that inspired it.
“The reason I favor the Cortez is because it’s very representative of the L.A. culture, especially street culture and also sports culture,” stated Edison Chen in an earlier interview. “The Los Angeles Dodgers shoe, also in blue, white, red, is obviously a Cortez. It’s very L.A. You don’t have to write L.A., everybody just knows.”
