The Fortnite x Air Jordan collaboration returns in 2021 with a slew of purchasable cosmetic outfits and accessories.


Fortnite's partnership with the Air Jordan apparel and sneaker brand dates back to May of 2019, during the height of the Battle Royale game's popularity. Nike produced the Air Jordan line for six-time NBA Champion and NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan and Fortnite naturally inked a partnership back in Chapter 1 – Season 9.

It seemed to be a one-and-done type of deal, but Epic Games has confirmed a revival of the Fortnite x Air Jordan crossover. Starting December 1, players will have a chance to purchase the latest set of cosmetic outfits inspired by the Air Jordan XI Cool Grey sneaker and accessories via Fortnite's Item Shop. ESTNN is here to provide all the information you might need.

The latest Fortnite x Air Jordan crossover focuses on Air Jordan XI Cool Grey—described as its most popular sneaker. Nike released the Cool Grey sneaker in 2001, and Fortnite players can acquire the set beginning this evening at 7 PM EST. The offerings include a male and female character model with grey and black colors and the iconic Cool Grey shoe. The Fortnite x Air Jordan collaboration also features a Dunk On ‘Em Emote, which you can see below:
