Going back to 1985, the Air Jordan 1 launched to, at the time, not much fanfare. It wouldn’t be until years later that the silhouette gained its fame in the sneakerhead space, though in that same year, another silhouette in the Air Jordan family launched and still remains a mystery to this day. The AJKO, unofficially dubbed the “knock-off” version of the AJ 1, is back for another release in 2022, this time in a clean Grey Fog colorway.
Synthetic leather and canvas take over the sneaker with the latter of the two materials appearing in grey on the mudguard and eyestays while the toebox, midfoot, and heel are covered in white. Synthetic leather appears on the collar in the same white shade as the canvas below, hosting an “AJKO” branded Wings logo in black, complimenting the rest of the branding details seen throughout. More white shades land on the tongue and lace combo while the entire design is completed by a white-on-cream midsole and outsole package.
The Air Jordan AJKO 1 Grey Fog is slated to release on September 17th, 2022. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $150. Follow along as we break down everything you need to know about the release and everywhere that you can buy the Jordan AJKO 1 Grey Fog for retail.
