Jordan 1 KO Bred
via Nike

by Brendan Dunne

This weekend's release of the Air Jordan 1 KO "Bred" has been canceled due to quality issues.

Retailers like Finish Line have issued tweets on the situation, citing what appears to be a generic statement from Jordan Brand on the reason for the cancelation. Representatives from Jordan Brand have apparently been contacting retailers with the following statement on the sneakers:

"This weekend’s release of the AJ 1 KO High OG (638471-001) has been canceled indefinitely due to product related issues. The decision was made because the product did not meet the Jordan Brand’s high quality standards."

Retailers apparently haven't been informed as to what specific quality issues caused the cancelation, but people online have been complaining about mold on the sneakers. Members on forum NikeTalk have brought up the mold, and Twitter user @liziswaydope posted some photos showing off the mold.

Retailers have been asked to return all their pairs of the Jordan 1 KO "Bred," presumably so the sneakers can go through a second round of quality checks.

No new Jordan release date has been set for this pair.
