First Look: KAWS x Air Jordan Collaboration

Brian Donnelly, better known by his artist name KAWS, has worked with plenty of brands in streetwear and sneakers. With sneaker collaborations with Bape and Nike, Jordan Brand is the next on the list and it might be happening in 2017. With the Air Jordan 4 being the chosen silhouette, twitter user @J23app confirmed that the two would be collaborating for the first time ever on a sneaker. While the colorway is listed as Cool Grey/White, images suggest that the sneakers will be black with gold accents. Not to be confused with the Air Jordan 4 "Royalty," the Kaws x Air Jordan 4 features suede midsoles and icy translucent glow-in-the-dark outsole. The signature Kaws "X" can be seen on the bottom, too. It's unclear if there is more than one colorway releasing. There are no official release date from Kaws or Jordan Brand, but a Nike Talk thread is hinting towards a release date of March 2017.
