Famed artist KAWS went recluse after discontinuing his streetwear brand OriginalFake in 2013, only showing face for the occasional high art project or worthwhile collaboration. Jordan Brand commission him for the latter; his canvas: the Air Jordan 4. The result, magnificent.
The KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is as artful a sneaker as they come. Extremely limited in all regards, this version of the iconic silhouette is accompanied by a correlating apparel collection (sold separately, of course).
From a design perspective, the KAWS-edition Air Jordan 4 features clean aesthetic, while the subtle nuances define the shoe. Constructed with a buttery premium suede upper in smooth and heathered textures, it's drenched in a tonal grey colorway. KAWS hand graphics are etched into the upper as well, as well as the matching hang tag. The midsole and upper “Wings” are also wrapped in suede. Finally, a glow in the dark sole completes the look.
