Originally released in 1985, the Air Jordan KO line continues to expand to this day, especially as of late with the reveal of the new white and black KOs.

Also known as the "Grey Fog" or "Greyscale" colourway, these white and black AJKOs feature a repacked design from Michael Jordan's first icon mix of canvas and synthetic leather.

Moreover, like the '85 originals, the new AJKOs continue Nike's decidedly more relaxed take on one of the best Air Jordan models of all time to give sneaker fans a unique new Jordan model to add to their collections.

With a new design but retro feel, here's everything we know about the "White and Black" Air Jordan 1 KOs so far...

Air Jordan 1 KO White and Black Release Date

Despite some reports announcing their arrival in July, Nike SNKRS has now confirmed that the "White and Black" AJKOs are available now as of 17 September 2022.

There was some confusion around whether the sneakers would debut in the UK at the same time. Any confusion has since been covered though as the sneakers are available in both the UK and the US right now.

However, with the release confirmed, how exactly do the "White and Black" AJKOs look...

Air Jordan 1 KO White and Black Design

As mentioned, the new "White and Black" Jordans feature both synthetic leather and canvas across the uppers as per the traditional AJKO build.

In terms of the colours though, Nike has opted for a combination of white with light grey fabric overlays contrasted by black details and accents, a scheme you'll find feature on many of the best Jordan 1 colourways around right now.

More specifically, you get black Swooshes along the sides which match the Nike logos on the tongues and insoles, the interior lining, plus the special "AJKO" insignias on the collars.

The shoes also feature several sail-coloured details including the laces, outsoles, and across the collars.

Overall, these off-white additions give more of an 'aged' look to these sneakers, thus tying the retro-meets-modern theme of these new KO Jordan 1s together for an all-around unique design.

Air Jordan 1 KO White and Black Price

The AJKO 1s are listed at Nike SNKRS for $150 in adult sizing. This aligns with the usual retail price of KO Jordans, like the "Rush Orange" 1s, at this moment in time.

However, the price is slightly more than the usual cost of a pair of comparable Jordan 1 Mids, so keep that in mind if you're planning to pick up the new AJKOs.

Where To Buy The Air Jordan 1 KO White and Black

You can find the "White and Black" AJKOs listed on the Nike SNKRS launch page right now in adult sizes.

That said, if you miss out on the chance to pick up a pair through retail, then we'd recommend checking out the resale market at StockX.
