Reader, I must confess: I am An Old. It has been at least a year and I’m still mostly unsure as to what exactly Fortnite is. I have played Overwatch and hear it’s… similar to that? It’s like Overwatch but with a hefty dash of Deadpool? At this point, I’m too afraid to ask.
That said, I may have to find out for myself soon. Because while I’m not quite sure what Fortnite is, I sure as heck know about Air Jordans — and guess who’s just announced a dope Fortnite collab?
Fortnite x Jumpman is a new collaboration between the two brands centering on a new Limited Time Mode and new skins for Fortnite characters that feature a dope array of colorful Air Jordans. The game itself is a skateboard-centric quest that features an array of killer skateboard and Air Jordan colorways that can be unlocked by players through gameplay.
The centerpiece of the collaboration is the Hang Time Bundle, which contains the Clutch Outfit and the Grind Outfit. However, more importantly, it comes with a specific challenge pack that can unlock more pairs of Air Jordans for players to affix to their characters. There will also be new editions of the Grind and Clutch outfits available to unlock through this challenge pack.

Hot on the heels of the Fortnite x Avengers: Endgame and Fortnite x John Wick crossover, Fortnite x Jumpman runs on the Fortnite v9.10 update. There’s no word yet on whether or not the collaboration will include physical shoes, but it doesn’t seem entirely out of the question. Jordan Brand is picky about their pop culture collabs and puts them out far more scarcely than Nike or adidas, but when they do, they tend to be a big hit. Remember those instant-sellout Air Jordan 1s that dropped for Into the Spider-Verse? The defense rests.
You can download Fortnite x Jumpman now. As for future Fortnite sneaker news, keep an eye on this space.
