Establishing its roots in 1989 in the iconic New York City, Union is considered one of the original sneaker boutiques of the fashion industry and is founded on the foundation of rebellion and youth streetwear.
Union Los Angeles was established two years later by one of the original location’s former employees, Chris Gibbs, and has paved the way for sneaker boutiques to collaborate with brands on a sneaker regularly, and Union has done it with brands like Nike and Jordan since 2005. Each of Union's collaborative silhouettes is elevated yet unique. The first collaboration was presented on the Nike Air Force 180 x Union ‘Clerks Pack.’ Since then, Union has become one of Nike and the Jordan Brand’s most consistent collaborators, having delivered shoes such as the Nike Dunk High, Nike Dunk Low, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 2, and Air Jordan 4. With that, the ongoing collaboration between Union and Jordan continues with the arrival of a brand new silhouette: the Air Jordan 1 KO Low. Inspired by the original Air Jordan 1 KO, this design arrives as the first-ever low-cut version of the Air Jordan 1 KO.
"UNION X AIR JORDAN 1 KO LOW"
The Union x Air Jordan 1 KO Low spotlights an extremely understated aesthetic while still remaining detailed and elevated. Taking on an all-white cotton canvas upper, the low-top sneaker is secured by durable cotton twill binding tape around the seams. The exposed foam tongue arrives in a blend of half canvas and half suede, while the contrasting detailing can be found at the interchangeable Swooshes, inner liner, heel branding, and rubber outsole. Taking on an ‘airy’ color scheme, the design makes an impression with its interchangeable velcro Swooshes that reveal a repeating ‘UN/LA’ text at the base. A ‘UN/LA’ flag label can be found stitched at the seams, while the Cream midsole offers a contrasting touch. Embroidered yellow stitching can also be found near the ankle. The sneakers come packaged in a special co-branded box, which spotlights an oversized gold chain across the top.
