Arguably the most iconic sneaker, the Air Jordan 1 has dominated the sneaker industry for years. Now returning with an offshoot, images (courtesy of leaked.sneaks) have surfaced revealing a reported Air Jordan 1 KO “Paisley”. Since the news that Nike was bringing back the Air Jordan KO, fans have been keenly anticipating information.
Set to arrive with an upper constructed from fabric panels with leather trimmings, the shoe looks to feature Navy uppers. Each panel seems to display different white patterning along the fabric, with some donning a Paisley inspiration. The Swoosh and wings logo look to be made from a Black leather, like the trimmings around each panel. A mesh tongue and flat Black laces complete the upper, while a White midsole sits atop of a Navy outsole.
It’s supposed that this pair will arrive as part of a larger “Paisley” pack, including an Air Jordan 1 High. While 2021 seems to mark the return of the AJKO, it seems we will see more colorways drop in Spring. Currently rumored to retail for $170, this pair could be more expensive than the $140 of other pairs. Time will reveal more on this shoe (and hopefully a pack), so be sure to stay updated with Nice Kicks!
