Before any release is confirmed, there are always samples that are produced. According to @Pinoe77, this KAWS Air Jordan 4 Black Suede colorway is one that never made it past the sample stages.

Advertisment

Just like the retail release, this KAWS x Air Jordan 4 features a premium Black instead of Grey suede upper with Mickey Mouse-esque hands stitched throughout. A premium leather inner liner, KAWS’ familiar “XX” replacing the classic “AIR” heel tabs sitting atop a glow-in-the-dark sole completes the design.

For those that can remember, there was another sample pair that looked similar to the previous “Royalty” Air Jordan 4 release, click here.
