Dressed in what appears to be luxurious suede, New York artist KAWS has officially teased his upcoming collaboration with Jordan Brand.
This latest image was shared on Instagram with the caption, “Views from the studio… #Jordan#KAWS #grey @jumpman23.” The heel tab has lost the Jumpman and been replaced with KAWS’ iconic X-eyes. Additionally, the midsole is done up in suede/nubuck but so far, that’s all we know right now.
Other images like the one below have leaked online, but there is no way to know whether they picture authentic pairs of this special AJ4 — they may only offer us a better idea of what the shoe may look like.
I was waiting to see an official tease before judging these and I’m still unsure. I guess it’s cool? I just won’t be buying it. For some reason, the shoe just looks…moldy.
Thoughts on the upcoming KAWS and Jordan Brand collab? Let us know.
