The Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro KO Hi are what some would call the most true to the original Air Jordan 1 shoes, replete with pre-yellowed midsoles for a real old school worn in look. These were Jordan's first shoes that actually cost him a fine of $5000 each game he played for violating the team's uniform policy. Two colorways are offered including White/Varsity Red and Red/White-Black, although another is known to exist as of the release date at the end of March 2010. The canvas upper comes with side straps for ankle support and the same 20 year old Air-Sole technology is used in the heel, employing encapsulated air pockets for impact cushioning on heel strike. Some customers have removed the yellow on the midsole with soap and water, while others prefer the vintage look the way it is. Men's sizes 7 through 17 are available; see the gallery for photos.
