The hype around this sneaker has been building since KAWS himself teased a collab with Nike on his Instagram in January. This sent sneakerheads worldwide into a frenzy, and it has become easily one of the most hyped Air Jordan collaborations of the year so far. Today images leaked of a grey suede Jordan, with the signature KAWS gloves imprinted the outsole and on the bottom.
The rumours of a glow in the dark sole can at this point not be confirmed or denied, but nonetheless this all very exciting stuff for collectors. This shoe is predicted to be available to limited retailers, and is set to be priced as part of the “Pinnacle Line” which retails for upwards of $300.
