The Fortnite x Air Jordan collaboration returns in 2021 with a plethora of purchasable cosmetic outfits and accessories.
Fortnite’s partnership with clothing and sneaker brand Air Jordan dates back to May 2019, at the height of Battle Royale game popularity. Nike produced the Air Jordan line for six-time NBA Champion and NBA Hall of Fame member Michael Jordan, and Fortnite naturally partnered in Chapter 1 – Season 9.
It seemed like a unique type of deal, but Epic Games have confirmed a rebirth of the Fortnite x Air Jordan crossover. Starting December 1, players will have the option to purchase the latest set of cosmetic outfits inspired by the Air Jordan XI Cool Gray sneaker and accessories through the Fortnite Item Shop. ESTNN is here to provide you with all the information you may need.
