Air Jordan 1 KO Shoes Get Grayscale Makeover For 2022 Releases
Jordan Brand delivered the popular “Chicago” color scheme alongside the iteration created in partnership with Grammy-winning musician Billie Eilish from its KO AJ1 line in 2021.
The Air Jordan 1 story, as mentioned on Nike’s official webpage, reads as follows:
“Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took to the court in 1985 wearing the Air Jordan I original, simultaneously breaking league rules and the will of its opponents, while capturing the imagination of fans around the world.
Arriving pairs of Air Jordan 1 KOs are fully wrapped in distinctly hued canvases. Shades of white and light gray mainly cover the stems. The toes are fashioned in white, which is neatly outlined with gray textiles.
These pure platinum gray elements then move up to form the eyelets of the shoes. Then, pristine white tabs are placed on top, surrounded by gray eyelets and covered with creamy white lace closures. The free ends of the tongues feature their Nike swoosh logo.
This is followed by the interior linings made with black fabrics, while the insole is white. These white insoles are stamped with black Nike swoosh markings for added detail.
Moving towards the heel counters you will see high collars used with white canvas materials displaying their Air Jordan wing logos. Logos are highlighted in black. Likewise, tall signature Nike swooshes in black tones are also placed on the medial side of the kicks. A minimal touch of soft beige color is visible under these collar areas.
In addition, the crisp white midsoles are beautifully combined with the outsoles, which are painted in lighter shades of gray. This finally accomplishes the minimal aesthetic of the pairs.
Be sure to capture the classic color scheme sported by these Air Jordan 1 KO Grayscale sneakers. You can visit the official Nike website on July 17th as they are expected to arrive on that date. Get them for $140.
