The KAWS x Air Jordan 4 was a highly anticipated release that officially debuted on March 31st, 2017 and retailed for $350 USD. The release also came with matching apparel to go along with the shoe’s theme.
Not only was this a one-of-a-kind collaboration, Senior Director of Special Projects, Gemo Wong, went ahead and said, “it’s a piece of sneaker history. Some of my friends said that this is the biggest sneaker release ever.”
You can hear more quotes from KAWS and Gemo Wong below during an interview with Hypebeast.
Looking back at previous KAWS collaborations, a lot of us were expecting an Air Jordan 4 with colorful accents all over the place. But, KAWS decided to go with a more simple look, one that you can wear everyday. Dressed in a premium Grey suede upper with Mickey Mouse-esque hands stitched throughout the shoe, custom footbeds and a glow-in-the-dark sole.
So looking back at the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 release, would you agree with both KAWS and Gemo Wong when they say its the best sneaker collaboration of all-time?
