Whereas previously a co-branded workbook featuring both Eilish’s and Jordan Brand’s logo on it was leaked, we now get a full look at the rumored Billie Eilish x Nike Air Jordan 1 KO courtesy of @chriscolgan.
The images of the shoe, which have been circulating on social media, show a bright neon green AJKO featuring Billie Eilish’s logo on the tongue tag, as well as a co-branded insole. The colorway is similar to that of Eilish’s self-confessed favorite Jordan sneaker, Don C’s Jordan Legacy 312.
While no concrete information exists just yet, leak accounts suggest that September 9 could be the day we see the debut collaborative sneaker drop. Billie Eilish x Jordan Brand is a partnership that has been rumored for quite some time.
In the past, Eilish has partnered with Jordan Brand to unveil new colorways of retro Jordans, including the “Bordeaux” Nike Air Jordan 3. Jordan Brand VP of Footwear Gentry Humphrey has also commented on a potential collaboration in the past, saying: “You see us doing things with folks like Aleali May, you see us, gonna be doing some things with folks like Billie Eilish.”
Eilish has also been very open about her affinity to retro Jordans, often wearing Air Jordan 1s on stage during her concerts. The singer also apparently let slip that a more concrete collaboration would be coming when she appeared on Complex Sneaker Shopping in 2019.
As we know, collaborations can sometimes take time from concept to release and are planned well in advance. Therefore, it wouldn’t be surprising if the final product of any partnership was to be unveiled soon.
