UPDATE: This is it – the release date for the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 has finally been announced! This eagerly anticipated collaboration will be released in Greater China on March 28, followed by a global release on March 31.
Jordan Brand have hit us with one last official look at the colab, also revealing an accompanying dual-branded apparel collection. We can look forward to both a t-shirt and hoodie decorated with an all-over reflective print of KAWS' signature gloved hands, as well as a five-panel cap and black satin coach's jacket.
Jordan Brand have yet to announce how limited the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 collection will be – nor where they will be sold – but expect these to sell out instantly on release. Get your camp chairs ready and work on those checkout skills if you want a chance to cop!
Though Jordan Brand are still reticent about release details for this KAWS colab, the grape vine reports that accounts will be stocking the colab in late March. Further reason to think we’re approaching drop day comes by way of retailer photos, teasing pairs that they already have in hand before they set them free.
All the finer details of this Air Jordan 4 have been put under the microscope. The KAWS mittens worked into the suede can be seen clearer than before, close-ups of the insole and rear tongue show that craftsmanship of the release is sure to hold up to scrutiny and we’ve got a comprehensive look at the packaging. Even the message written on the card has been revealed. As you’re channelling KAWS and marking your calendars with fat Xs, soak up the shoe via flicks from Kenlu and start scheming how to make them your own.
The KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is rumoured to release on March 31. Stay with us and we’ll update you as soon as a date is set in stone.
