The legendary AJKO silhouette has been an industry favourite for decades! Now, this iconic sneaker is back better than ever before with colourways that are sure to incite a frenzy amongst fellow sneakerheads. Released back in 2021, these colourways were one of the most anticipated drops of the year! Ever since details regarding the Air Jordan 1 AJKO “Storm Blue” were announced, Air Jordan fans had been waiting – rather impatiently – for more news from Jordan brand about the release. As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait, and initial images of the Air Jordan 1 AJKO finally surfaced, followed by the hyped-up release date in summer 21.
Originally released all the way back in 1986, the Chicago colourway has made its first return since the Retro 2014 release, and Jordan Brand couldn’t have picked a better silhouette to showcase the design once again.
Sporting a canvas upper as opposed to leather, the Air Jordan 1 AJKO takes the classic design and gives it a slight reworking that works remarkably well. The decision adds an element of versatility that we haven’t seen from Jordan Brand in a while. The “Chicago” colourway makes use of an all-white base and details bold red accents that feature across the ankle, heel and toe box to serve the striking silhouette well. Don’t panic though as Jordan Brand have stuck to the tried and tested leather design when it comes to the lateral and medial signature Nike Swoosh branding.
Fans of the Air Jordan 1 AJKO will be happy to know that the “Chicago” colourway hit the shelves in May 2021, so now the initial demand surge has lowered and these sneakers are much easier to source a pair for! The price has also settled lower than its initial release and has been stable for a while, indicating that the price has found a natural bottom, so there’s no better time to buy!
