Sneakerheads will agree that one of the best feelings they have had in their lives is when they walked out of a retail store carrying a boxing containing their favorite Air Jordan pair. For them, the package is as important as the kicks they contain. Most of them actually store their Air Jordan sneakers inside the box they came in within their closet. Just opening an avid sneakerhead’s closet and spotting a number of Air Jordan boxes is enough to impress anyone. Sneakerheads already know that the upcoming KAWS x Air Jordan 4 is coming with a special hang tag, but it will also arrive in a special box.
Back in 1985, the original Air Jordan 1 made its retail debut Black- and Red-colored box. When Jordan Brand brought back the Air Jordan 1 “Royal” back in 2013, they drop in the same OG box. The return of the OG box welcomed with the same delight and joy that sneakerheads expressed upon the return of the “Nike Air” tongue branding. Back in 2015, Jordan Brand were celebrating their 30th anniversary, so they decided to whip up a brand new box. The box was introduced near the end of 2015 and all the sneakers released in 2016 arrived in it. The box had a Black-colored base with Gold-colored branding.
It is being rumored that the upcoming KAWS x Air Jordan 4 will be one of March’s Air Jordan releases 2017 that will arrive later this month. While most sneakerheads must have already gotten a look at the sneaker itself, Don C shared further on-foot photos of the sneaker, as well as those of its box, on his official Instagram account (@chicagodonc). Judging from the photo, its box appears to be predominantly dressed up in Black, with the KAWS signature “XX” branding in Red and “AIR” in White printed on top of its lid.
Thus, sneakerheads can expect this special Air Jordan 4 release to hit the shelves this very month in the box featured here. They should also be prepared to spend $350 if they wish to cop a pair of the upcoming KAWS x Air Jordan 4.
