Just when you thought the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 saga was over, that it was safe to lick your wounds and recover, the ‘Friends and Family’ version has resurfaced. Last seen in June, the black make-up was assumed to have been divvied out to KAWS’ close pals. But this new ‘gram has sparked new optimism.
