Model: Air Jordan 1 KO
Editor's Notes: It's official, the Billie Eilish x Nike Air Jordan 1 KO is upon us. Following a series of leaks, the Swoosh has finally dropped an official look at the upcoming collaboration, a partner to Billie's Air Jordan 15 in that both are vegan and partially recycled.
The images of the shoe 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.
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.
