THE AIR JORDAN 1 KO RETRO "CHICAGO" IS RETURNING IN 2021
By the time it launches, approximately seven years would have gone by since its previous retro revival as the Bulls-inspired colorway was last delivered to the market back in March 2014.
Just by the looks of this 2021 pair which has recently emerged by way of official imagery, it appears that the constructions and palette are designed to resemble that of the original from 1986. Canvas constructions lead the way as they form a majority of its upper build and come styled in appropriate Chicago colors with crispy white toe boxes, tongues and quarter paneling neighbored by “University Red” forefoot overlays, ankle flaps and rubber soles. To complete the Bulls-influenced theme, solid black notes sprawl to the leather Swooshes and ankle panels, in addition to the shoe strings, interior liners and remixed “AJKO”-branded wings embellishments. Nike Sportswear logos land on the tongues and insoles in matching vibrant hue.
A release date hasn’t been announced just yet, but you can likely see these dropping via Nike and select retailers in the coming months.
