First released in 1986 and last seen in 2014, the Air Jordan 1 KO “Chicago” is expected to be included in the Spring collection of the Jordan Brand next year. Though it did not receive the same hype compared to OG pairs, this Air Jordan sneaker is undoubtedly part of the Jumpman Team’s rich history.
The pair will be dressed in its iconic white, black, and university red color scheme. Unlike the usual Air Jordan 1 which is built with premium leather, the Air Jordan 1 KO has uppers made with canvas materials. The canvas uppers will come in white along with university red overlays and black leather Swoosh and ankle collars.
The pair then finishes with the AJKO branding on the Wings logo atop white midsoles and red outsoles.
There is no exact date of release yet, but the pair is expected to be made available for purchase sometime in Spring 2021 at selected Nike stores for a price tag of US$140.
Here are more detailed looks of the returning Air Jordan 1 KO “Chicago”.
