Always imitated; never replicated.
In 1985, Nike and the Air Jordan line introduced the Air Jordan 1 KO as a direct response to the Air Jordan 1 imitations that flooded the market.
The AJ1 KO, which stands for knockoff, held the same design language of the AJ1 but with more canvas materials instead of leather. The AJ1 KO’s legacy continues in 2022 with an all new colorway.
The Air Jordan 1 KO “Syracuse” releases in-store on Friday, August 5, 2022, at 11 a.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Uptown Plaza location.
