Jordan Brand is – and forever will be – a brand all on its own. But nothing would complete JB’s celebration for its successful 30 years without the comeback of its famous AJ1 “Bred”.
Air Jordan 1 KO High OG Bred
Color: Black/Varsity Red-White
Jordan Release Date:August 8, 2015
The “Black/Red” Air Jordan 1s or “Bred” as Jordan heads know it is the sneaker that jump-started the greatest legacy of all time for the AJ1s. The shoes’ fame came to exist when Michael Jordan proudly wore them during his rooking campaign in the year 1985; exactly the same year where people found out that he will be a game changer. But taking into consideration the rules of the hardcourt from before, MJ got fined for $5,000 each and every time he wore them. It was Peter Moore who designed the Bred and it was such a perfect match for the uniforms of the Chicago Bulls.
Early on, Sneaker News revealed that Jordan Brand is certainly going retro with their Breds and will also be going for the classic Air Jordan 1 KO canvas to complete the shoes’ new face. It was not a month ago when a mysterious version of the AJ1 KO was hinted to make a comeback only to find out that what the sneaker world was referring to was actually the AJ1 Bred going KO this time around.
As a nod to the Chicago Bulls team, the new Air Jordan 1 KO Bred is dressed with the team’s original color scheme of Black, Varsity Red, as well as White. On the aesthetic side, the shoes make use of an upper made of full canvas for a more lightweight make as well as durable construction. The canvas upper also gives the shoes its casual yet classic look. Instead of the pre-aged, vintage yellow midsole that is typical of the very first AJ1 Bred, the KO version of the shoes pairs it up nicely with a clean white instead for a more distinct look against the Varsity Red as well as Black colorway of the shoes. The all canvas make of the shoes is broken with a leather ankle support sporting alternate Wings with words that read “AJKO”.
With a retro makeover, Jordan heads would definitely find the Air Jordan 1 KO Bred a must-addition to their collection. All around, the pair is hinted to hit the market this August for just a very affordable price of $140. And with that, let us all end with waiting when the AJ1 KO Breds would hit Jordan Brand stores worldwide.
