Original Story (02/21/22): The Air Jordan 1 KO, aka the AJKO, returns in a new colorway in 2022.

Following last year’s return of the OG “Chicago,” a “Storm Blue” release, and a collaboration with Billie Eilish, the ’80s “Knock Off” version of the Air Jordan 1 is now dropping in a new “Syracuse” colorway. Taking the color scheme from the OG Dunk High of the same name, this AJKO features a white base paired white orange overlays. Canvas is used for most of the shoe’s construction, save for the Swoosh and ankle collar, which feature traditional leather. The upper sits atop a Sail midsole and orange rubber outsole.
