Earlier this week we hit you with a release date for this original Air Jordan from 1985, but it’s time to take a closer look at each individual pair. The 2010 releases of the AJKO were the surprise hits of that year, but we imagine these won’t exactly sneak up on people because the AJKO and the Air Jordan 1 in general has been an intensely popular pick – and what better than this original ‘Banned’ colorway? These are destined for stores this June 2nd at select Jordan Brand retailers, so take another look below because you’ve never seen this version in this condition (remember those originals we showed you last weekend?).

Air Jordan AJKO QS – Release Date

May 24th, 2012 by | 18 comments

air jordan ajko black red white release date Air Jordan AJKO QS   Release Date

The first weekend of June should set the pace for an outstanding line-up of sneakers set to arrive throughout the Summer months, and what better to kick it off with some classic canvas-uppered Retros? The two June 2012 Quickstrike releases of the AJKO were first reported just last week, and after a confirmed release date of June 2nd at Asian retailers, it appears that the U.S. release date will be the same as American shops will also carry both Retro releases in two Saturdays. These will be available at select Jordan Brand retailers as a Quickstrike release, and while both carry that ‘OG’ vibe with their baseline Bulls colorways, just one of the two is an actual original. Can you spot the OG? Photos: gallery

Throw in the AJKO in the list of OG Air Jordans slated to hit in the next coming months, and although it’s very clear that these don’t have the appeal like, say, the Air Jordan IV or Air Jordan VII, don’t make the same mistake by passing on these like you did with the first AJKO Retro in 2010! Sneaker News filled you in on the upcoming QS release in the coming months, and for now, it appears that Asian retailers will indeed drop these in early June. Will U.S. retailers follow suit? You can be Sneaker News will keep you on top of that release date, so check out these new angles of both upcoming Quickstrike AJKO releases and let us know which of the two colorways you like better!

Ready for some more Air Jordan heat for this Summer? Arriving at select Jordan Brand retailers in the coming weeks as a Quickstrike drop are two Air Jordan AJKO releases; the AJKO is one of the more mysterious Air Jordan models of all-time, but 2010′s re-issue proved to be wildly popular and was considered one of the best sneakers of the year. It appears another original Air Jordan AJKO in the Black/Red is set for a return, as well as another Chicago Bulls-inspired colorway with a White/Black toe, taking after one of the original Air Jordan 1 releases. You can find both at select Jordan Brand retailers very soon so check with your local spot and we’ll keep you updated on a firm release. Photos: gallery2

Air Jordan AJKO – OG Pair on eBay

March 29th, 2012 by | 11 comments

Certainly one of the most mysterious Air Jordans to ever grace the planet is 1985′s Air Jordan AJKO, which dropped alongside the Air Jordan 1 in the trademark canvas builds with the ‘AJKO’ label on the Wings logo. What ‘KO’ exactly entails isn’t very clear, although the most common first guess is ‘Knock Out’ – one that has neither been confirmed nor refuted by Jordan Brand’s contemporaries. The 2010 Retro of the AJKO certainly left us in a euphoric daze, but these OGs right here should have you down for the count; peep this uber-crisp pair of original Air Jordan AJKOs standing in amazing shape – very impressive for a a 27-year-old canvas shoe. The bids are no live so if you need to get your ShoeZeum on, try your luck from this auction from jzambrano515 on eBay.

Air Jordan AJKO OG Tongue Label Swap

March 22nd, 2012 by | 20 comments

air jordan ajko label swap 1 Air Jordan AJKO OG Tongue Label Swap

The return of the Air Jordan AJKO was hailed as one of the best releases of 2010, cracking the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010 and grabbing the #6 overall spot ahead of some heavy-hitters like the Copper Foamposite. What can’t be overlooked is that the AJKO Retro wasn’t an exact replica of original primarily due to branding issues; while the Swoosh remained, the Nike tongue label was spurned in favor of a Jumpman Air version. Well, all it took was a few minutes, a steady hand, and a spare Nike label, and sentinel se7en on NT had all those ingredients to pull of a clean and simple alteration, giving his AJKOs that added level of authenticity (remember, the AJKO had a Nike label, not a Nike Air one). Check out the completed results and the process and let us know if you plan on doing to same to your KOs!

Air Jordan AJKO – Black – Red | OG Pair on eBay

May 17th, 2011 by | 16 comments

air jordan ajko black red og 04 Air Jordan AJKO   Black   Red | OG Pair on eBay

OG pairs of the Air Jordan AJKO are reserved for the hardcore of the hardcore. The black/red AJKO is near the top of rarest Air Jordans of all time, joining the several team-based colorways of the Air Jordan 1 and off-colored AJKOs like the tonal indigo purple colorway. This original pair of the Black/Red AJKO you see here has withstood the test of time (AJKOs don’t age very well thanks to the canvas upper), with the only real degradation occuring on the midsole and eroded lace eyelets. Other than that, what you see before you is a true Air Jordan collector’s gem that is priced rather fairly compared to other OG Air Jordan 1s and AJKOs we’ve seen before. If you’ve never seen this colorway before, check out the extra images below and take a look at the auction from silverline55paul on eBay.
