Last year Jordan fans were treated to a welcome surprise when JB retroed the Air Jordan 1 KO, a shoe that hadn’t been seen on store shelves since 1985. Now, JB is set to release an all new style of the model near and dear to Jordan purists’ hearts, this time shedding the traditional canvas upper in favor of a premium leather treatment. The shoe will come in three colorways — black, light graphite and dark cinder — and feature a tonal upper with white midsole, with the exception of the ebony colorway that’s completely blacked out. Notwithstanding the luxe material upgrade and radically modified color blocking, the shoe still retains the distinctive AJKO attitude. Look for them drop at Jordan retailers on November 12th.
Release Date: November 12th, 2011 (Saturday)
