UPDATE: Originally scheduled for an August 1st release, Jordan Brand pulled the release of the 'Bred' AJKO at the eleventh hour due to 'product related issues' (read: shipments were rocking up at stores covered in mould!). According to reports, the issue didn't affect the entire production run but Jordan Brand went ahead and recalled every single pair. Better safe than sorry, right? It seems JB must have isolated the issue and banished the offending pairs because, according to Sneakers Addict, these KOs are on their way back to stores and will be dropping in Korea on November 25th! Hopefully these are on their way back to Jordan stockists worldwide – we'll keep you posted.
Same same, but different, no?! We're gonna take a stab and say a lot of cats slept on these KO 1s when Jordan Brand dropped them around the same time back in 2012. Now it's not a complete one-to-one of the 2012 edition, but for all intents and purposes it's 99.999999999% the same, bar the change in the tongue from the Jumpman logo (2012) to the Nike Air motif (2015) and some minor cosmetic upgrades to the wings logo perched high on the heel. Find these Air Jordan 1 KOs dropping August 1 at spots including Sneaker Politics.
