Kaws’ first-ever Air Jordan collaboration arrived Friday and as expected, it wasn’t easy to get. For those who came up empty-handed, you may want to hold off for a moment before splurging on the shoe’s current resell tag of around $2,000.
After some confusion regarding the Air Jordan 4’s availability via the official Kaws online store, the artist made an official announcement Tuesday that a release would take place through mailing list invitations.
“I’m seeing a lot of comments from people upset about my website not releasing the product today, but I never mentioned product would be on my site today,” Kaws wrote. “For every release on kawsone.com, I have sent a mailer the day before announcing the release and time it will go live. I wish I caught wind of this sooner so I could prevent wasted time and expectations.”
Sunday’s post was flooded with frustrations from sneakerheads — it currently has more than 1,600 comments.
