In case sneakerheads thought the Jordan x KAWS capsule is the only collaboration taking place between the Brian Donnelly and some other brand, that does not seem to be the case. While news of a collaboration between KAWS and Nigo was already circulating for quite some time now, the entire KAWS x Peanuts Uniqlo UT Collection itself has finally been unveiled. While the Jordan x KAWS Collection includes apparel to complement the Air Jordan 4, this other collection revolves around various apparel pieces and toys. However, while the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is almost here, this KAWS x Peanuts Uniqlo UT Collection will not arrive until next month.
For sneakerheads who have no clue, Nigo happens to be a Japanese fashion designer. He teamed up with Brian Donnelly to design the plush toys and T-shirts that are a part of this KAWS x Peanuts Uniqlo UT Collection. The T-shirts are decorated with characters like “Joe KAWS,” Snoopy and Woodstock, and their prices will start from $9.90 for the kids-sized ones up to $14.90 for the adult-sized ones. As for the plush toys, their prices will vary based on their size, and will range anywhere between $19.90 and $39.90. The collection will become available online and at Uniqlo stores on April 28th.
Much like the Air Jordan 1 “Royal,” the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is one of the most sought after Air Jordan releases 2017 of this week. As mentioned, the premium sneaker itself is a part of a larger Jordan x KAWS Collection, which includes a matching coaches jacket, 5-panel cap, hoodie, and t-shirt. Apart from the soles, this sneaker is indeed entirely made up of Cool Grey-colored premium suede, bearing the signature KAWS “XX” branding over each heel. Even the apparel features the same branding and a hang tag will accompany the sneaker as well.
The retail debut of the sneaker in China has already taken place on March 28th, 2017. However, the entire Jordan x KAWS Collection will end up arriving worldwide at select Nike stores, the KAWS Online Store, END Clothing and SNS on March 31st to retail for $350.
