Brian Donnelly, more famously known as Kaws, teamed up with Jordan Brand as they worked on part two of their Air Jordan 4 collaboration. The anticipation for these were at an all-time high, as the black colorway of these shoes, in my opinion, look sleeker than the previous all-grey pair. For this release, KAWS decided to do a raffle entry yesterday that started at 12PM ET and was supposed to be a 24-hour raffle.
However, given the current climate in the sneaker world, something was bound to happen. The raffle was shut down in 15 minutes because of heavy traffic going to the Kawsone.com website, where the shoes dropped. The site is the only known source to supply this all-Black pair. Nike hasn’t confirmed whether they will be available on the Nike SNKRS app or any other stores.
