The brief model? We’re getting Michael Jordan footwear, hoodies, and different beauty objects, all primarily based on the long-lasting basketball participant’s model. Not less than getting these new Jordans will not imply having to attend in line exterior a Nike retailer or Foot Locker on the morning time. Except Epic has another methods up its sleeve.
This is every part we learn about Fortnite x Jordan and what objects you may choose up in the course of the collaboration.
Fortnite x Jordan cosmetics
Don’t be concerned, Fortnite is not going to begin promoting particular person footwear… but, I hope. The Jordan cosmetics come within the type of two new skins with varied alternate outfits. Take a peek beneath.
There’s additionally a brand new again bling primarily based on the Air Jordan 11 Retro Cool Grey footwear, plus or minus a few minor variations, seen within the high left of the above picture. Why spend $400 on a pair of footwear when you may spend V-bucks?
A “dunk” emote has additionally been leaked, however no video appears to have surfaced simply but. Gamers who full a collection of “Trickshot Challenges” can even obtain this free basketball spray.
Just like the Balenciaga collaboration earlier than it, the Fortnite x Jordan collab can even include a brand new Artistic Mode map that gamers can goof off in and discover. From what we will see within the leaked photos beneath, it appears like a mix of high-end retail retailer and trippy artwork gallery, full with its personal basketball court docket.

Additional particulars stay scarce for now, however in line with FN_Assist the Fortnite x Jordan collaboration will drop on December 1.
I’ve received to confess, even with the ludicrous tales of sneakerheads attempting to find footwear like feral predators (I can not choose, I construct Gunpla), it is a approach cooler collaboration than Balenciaga. Perhaps LeBron is a much bigger star to youngsters than Michael Jordan as of late, however the model continues to be synonymous with basketball, and way more geared in direction of a youthful fandom than the glitzy sleaze of Balenciaga.
Contemplating Epic could be very a lot into the thought of building its own metaverse, I would not be shocked if we noticed extra granular customization choices for Fortnite avatars sooner or later and—appropriately sufficient—sneaker manufacturers may be how we take our first steps there.
Within the meantime, remember that Fortnite Chapter 3 is arising actual quickly.
