, The KAWS Air Jordan IV has premium grey suede and a glow-in-the-dark outsole. KAWS' signature "XX" replaces the heel tab's classic "AIR" marking. To compliment the release of the sneaker, Jordan Brand's also releasing an apparel collection that includes a black satin coach's jacket with contrasting red Jumpman and KAWS "XX" on the right and left chest respectively, a black hoodie and t-shirt, both with tonal reflective print, feature KAWS' trademark hands and the "XX AIR" graphic and a five-panel cap. "We look for collaboration partners that meet our standard of greatness," notes Gemo Wong, Senior Design Director for Special Projects at Jordan Brand. "Street art defies the traditional art canvas and can live anywhere. We look at our footwear design through the same lens, as an artistic expression on the streets. With KAWS, we create new connections and push the boundaries of our design thinking."New Jordans 2016
, The work of artist Brian Donnelly, the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 sets a new benchmark for upscale and exclusive Air Jordans. A full complement of grey suede, translucent glow soles, and signature KAWS branding on the upper, heel, and outsole make for the most sought-after Jumpman release of 2017. Although KAWS has indeed worked with Nike on several projects in the past, this is his first encounter with Jordan Brand, and he remains among very few collaborators that have ever been invited to the Jordan roster. The resulting sneaker is bare of any traditional plastic details, and instead is entirely comprised of premium grey suede, right down to the cage. The pared-down color scheme pays homage to KAWS' Companion characters, and is finished with a glow-in-the-dark outsole. Naturally, KAWS' "XX" is featured boldly on the heel in place of Jordan's classic "Air" marking.
The Jordans 2017
features a textured grey suede upper with co-branded heel tabs, nubuck and suede midsole, waxed laces and glow-in-the-dark outsoles with KAWS graphics. The upper is constructed entirely from premium grey suede, even replacing the AJ4's usual TPU components, which has been subtly embroidered all over with KAWS' Companion character. KAWS' signature "XX" logo adorns the heel in place of the standard Jumpman or Nike Swoosh. Blurring the line between product and art as only KAWS can, this unique take on the Air Jordan IV silhouette is an exercise in detailed craftsmanship, and for those that truly appreciate the art of sneaker design, a masterpiece. His mark is easy to spot—Xs in the most literal sense. However, it's the subtlety of each design detail that distinguishes KAWS from copycats. While KAWS has since become synonymous with street art and design, Brian Donnelly is not one to be pigeonholed. The breadth of his catalogue includes limited-edition toys, jaw-dropping sculptures, T-shirts, prints, kicks — essentially, rare collabs for days.
