Official Announcement: Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 1 KORelease: 30 September 2021
Featuring an aesthetic similar to Don C’s Jordan Legacy 312 (one of Eilish’s most cherished sneakers), the Air Jordan 1 KO comes blasted in neck-cranking neon volt. With the collaboration revolving around childhood memories, individual style, and ethical beliefs, Eilish praises the Air Jordan 1 for its versatility and shape, saying that it can be paired with basically anything (we tend to agree!).
As part of the announcement, Eilish reveals her connection to the Jordan Brand more broadly.
‘I’ve always loved Jordan,’ Eilish says. ‘It was such a crazy surreal, exciting, overwhelming experience to create these.’
Sustainability also forms a central ethos in her maiden Jordan Brand collaboration, both sneakers entirely vegan and bereft of any animal product at all. Both the Air Jordan 1 KO and Air Jordan 15 are also manufactured with 20% recycled material, as Nike and the Jumpman continue their ambitious ‘Move to Zero’ commitments.
Look for the Billie Eilish x Air Jordan 1 KO to land on the Billie Eilish web store on September 27. A release on Nike SNKRS will follow on September 30.
