The Jordan brand and Brooklyn artist, KAWS, have joined forces to release a limited edition collection. The capsule features a special edition of the Jordan IV retro along with a few clothing pieces. The collection goes on sale worldwide March 31st.
Brooklyn-born, world-renowned athlete Michael Jordan was famously cut from his high school varsity team. Undeterred, Jordan became a champion at the collegiate, professional and international levels, claiming an abundance of individual accolades along the way and initiating a groundbreaking synergy of sport and style.
Similarly Brooklyn-based, world-renowned artist Brian Donnelly (KAWS) started small — first cutting his teeth painting in local New Jersey train yards before building his reputation subverting advertisements in New York City and graduating to mounting full-scale solo shows at prestigious galleries and museums. Highlighting the capsule is the Air Jordan IV x KAWS. The first ever collaborative product between Jordan Brand and KAWS, the shoe advances Jordan Brand’s experimental mixing of materials by removing the silhouette’s traditional plastic accents and flooding the upper with premium grey suede. The color is a nod to KAWS’ companion pieces, and is punctuated by a glow-in-the-dark outsole. To finish it off, KAWS’ familiar “XX” reads boldly over the heel tab’s classic “AIR” marking.
