Jordan Brand’s first-ever releases of the Air Jordan 1 Low KO are starting to stack, this week adding a ‘Dark Royal Blue’ pair to the list of upcoming drops.
The Air Jordan 1 KO was originally released in 1986 as a takedown model for the premier AJ1. Constructed from canvas and featuring a simplified construction with fewer panels, the model was more accessible thanks to its lower price point. After the first-ever low top version released with Union last year, Jordan is following up with standard issue colorways. Pairs have already been leaked in Bred and Shadow colorways, and now a ‘Royal Blue’ pair has emerged. The base layer of canvas comes in white, with Dark Royal Blue overlays. Leather Swooshes and metal eyelets add an extra premium touch.
