Union LA‘s collaborative offerings are rarely well-received upon first glance. This was true of their Air Jordan 4 as well as their Air Jordan 2, despite both going on to sell out within mere moments at release. It’s likely history will repeat itself with the boutique’s forthcoming Air Jordan 1 KO Low, which is expected to drop later this month in both a leather and canvas-constructed make.
Following several teasers over the course of the last few months, the canvas version of the Union LA x Air Jordan 1 KO Low has just surfaced via official images. Relatively faithful to the original model in its construction, the pair dresses its upper almost entirely in the aforementioned material. The velcro-affixed Swoosh, however, opts for suede, its grey and blue options used to obscure the UN/LA print layered over the adhesive. Furthermore, Union has applied many of their signatures to the otherwise understated, white-dominant colorway: alongside darning the tongue and forefoot with yellow stitching, Chris Gibbs and his team have included the very same tag “UN/LA” tag that has accompanied many a past work.
For a closer, more detailed look at the Union LA x Air Jordan 1 KO Low, see below. Currently, these are expected to release on January 27th, likely doing so first through UnionLosAngeles.com.
Elsewhere at Jordan Brand, the Air Jordan 12 Cherry is rumored to be returning later this year.
