Fortnite Jordan Collaboration: Everything We Know About Fortnite’s Jordan Sneakers and Apparel Event
The latest fashion craze in Fortnite? Jordan sneakers and hoodies, new dataminer leaks show FN_Assist which have been reiterated by people like HypeX and iFireMonkey.
The short version? We get Michael Jordan shoes, hoodies, and other cosmetic items, all based on the iconic basketball player brand. At least getting those new Jordans won’t mean having to queue outside a Nike or Foot Locker store at dawn. Unless Epic has other trumps up its sleeve.
Here’s everything we know about Fortnite x Jordan and the items you can collect while collaborating.
Fortnite x Jordan Cosmetics
Don’t worry, Fortnite isn’t going to start selling individual shoes … just yet, I hope. Jordan cosmetics come in the form of two new skins with various alternate outfits. Take a look below.
There is also a new back bling based on the Air Jordan 11 Retro Cool Gray shoes, more or less some minor differences, visible at the top left of the image above. Why spend $ 400 on a pair of shoes when you can spend V-bucks?
A “dunk” emote has also been leaked, but no video appears to have surfaced yet. Players who complete a series of “Trickshot Challenges” will also receive this free basketball spray.
Like the Balenciaga collaboration before it, the Fortnite x Jordan collaboration will also come with a new Creative Mode map for players to have fun and explore. From what we can see in the images leaked below, it looks like a mix of a high-end retail store and a trippy art gallery, with its own basketball court.

Other details are scarce for now, but according to FN_Assist, the Fortnite x Jordan collaboration will end on December 1.
I have to admit, even with the ridiculous stories of sneakerheads looking for shoes like wild predators (can’t judge, I build Gunpla), it’s a much cooler collaboration than Balenciaga. Maybe LeBron is a bigger star for kids than Michael Jordan these days, but the brand is still synonymous with basketball and a lot more geared towards a young fandom than the glitzy Balenciaga sleaze.
Given that Epic is very interested in the idea of creating their own metaverse, I wouldn’t be shocked if we see more granular customization options for Fortnite avatars and, appropriately enough, brands in the future. sneakers could be the way we take our first steps there.
In the meantime, don’t forget that Fortnite Chapter 3 is coming very soon.
