2021 continues to surprise all Jordan Brand fans, confirming itself as an actual year of fire. For the first time since 1985, there was the return of the Air Jordan 1 “Neutral Gray” and the arrival of other variants such as the “University Blue”. But now the Jumpman plans to delight us with the return of a classic forgotten by many, the Air Jordan 1 KO “Chicago”.
The sneaker, launched in 1986, is very similar to a classic Air Jordan 1, but it differs from the latter model in the materials that make up the upper and the outsole. Instead of the usual upper part in leather, the Air Jordan 1 “KO” is made of resistant canvas. Except for the Swoosh and the collar. To make this sneaker particularly attractive, however, it will be the choice of color blocking. It will be identical to the one proposed on the iconic Jordan 1 “Chicago “. The last noteworthy detail that distinguishes this release is the outsole. It is borrowed from the Nike Vandal High.
This release could make many turn up their noses, but we are sure that it will rekindle the soul of many enthusiasts who has been waiting for the model since 2014, the last year it was released. The Air Jordan 1 KO “Chicago” will be released on May 12 at a retail price of around € 140.
