Streetwear brand CLOT dropped a new iteration of the Air Jordan 13 sneakers inspired by the traditional Terracotta Warriors from Chinese history. In a means to channel eclectic cultural references, the new silhouette boasts elements from both Eastern inspiration and Western themes as well. The latest version features premium suede fabric materials across its uppers in a mix of brown and gray hues. The tonal selection recalls the Terracotta statues that were discovered in the very first Emperor of China's mausoleum.

The paneling details are embossed and are stitched to imitate the plates that make up the armor. CLOT's branding accents are incorporated in gold colors to contrast and Air Jordan's Jumpman logos adorn both the tongue tab and heel section. The sole unit boasts the same colors as the uppers and its midsole has some transparent areas along with the signature CLOT bubble implemented at the shoe's carbon fiber torsion plate.
