The brief model? We’re getting Michael Jordan sneakers, hoodies, and different beauty gadgets, all primarily based on the enduring 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 first light. Until Epic has another tips up its sleeve.
This is the whole lot we learn about Fortnite x Jordan and what gadgets you possibly can decide up through the collaboration.
Fortnite x Jordan cosmetics
Don’t fret, Fortnite is not going to start out promoting particular person sneakers… but, I hope. The Jordan cosmetics come within the type of two new skins with numerous alternate outfits. Take a peek beneath.
There’s additionally a brand new again bling primarily based on the Air Jordan 11 Retro Cool Grey sneakers, plus or minus a few minor variations, seen within the high left of the above picture. Why spend $400 on a pair of sneakers when you possibly can 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” may also obtain this free basketball spray.
Just like the Balenciaga collaboration earlier than it, the Fortnite x Jordan collab may also include a brand new Artistic Mode map that gamers can goof off in and discover. From what we will see within the leaked photographs beneath, it seems like a mix of high-end retail retailer and trippy artwork gallery, full with its personal basketball courtroom.

Additional particulars stay scarce for now, however in line with FN_Assist the Fortnite x Jordan collaboration will drop on December 1.
I’ve obtained to confess, even with the ludicrous tales of sneakerheads trying to find sneakers like feral predators (I can not decide, I construct Gunpla), this can be 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 developing actual quickly.
