Original Story (09/30/20): It’s been a few years since we got a proper AJKO release, the last one releasing in 2016. This underrated iteration of the Air Jordan 1, originally created in 1986, ditches most of the leather on the upper and replaces it with canvas. The model is now poised to make a revival in 2021 in a “Storm Blue” colorway.
This Air Jordan 1 KO will come dressed in a Storm Blue, White, and Black color scheme. We will likely be getting a Royal AJ1-style colorway, which initial mock-ups suggest.
Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for first look photos, release date info, and other updates on the Air Jordan 1 KO “Storm Blue.” For now, expect a September 2021 release.
