The official unveiling of the Nike AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO x KAWS confirms what we all thought: this one’s a masterpiece.
Taking the legendary Jordan IV silhouette and uniting it with one of this generation’s most iconic artists, the shoe personifies the Jordan 4’s status as a lifestyle icon. The construction is premium from heel to toe, featuring smooth and hairy suedes throughout in a monochromatic Cool Grey shade. Subtle elements of the KAWS Companion character are stitched in a subtle all over embroidery print, which match the special custom insoles. A glow-in-the-dark outsole features the self-congratulatory clapping hands that feature extensively throughout KAWS’s artwork. KAWS’s ‘XX’ logo (often used as the eyes on many of his pieces) replaces the traditional Jordan Brand Jumpman or Nike Air placement on the heel, with ‘X’-tipped aglets on the laces for a perfect finish. As you’d expect, all of this comes packaged supremely in a stylish custom shoebox. This really is a superior piece of footwear.
