The AIR JORDAN 1 SHATTERED BACKBOARD pays homage to an exhibition game in Italy all the way back in 1986.
Rather than just concentrate on re-releases as part of their 30th anniversary, JORDAN BRAND have been looking through the G.O.A.T’s history to find events that can be turned into colourways that have a story behind them. One of the results from this desire to tell stories is this SHATTERED BACKBOARD colourway, which is a nod to the aforementioned exhibition, where MICHAEL JORDAN shattered a backboard during an overly-energetic slam. The colours are taken from the jersey he was wearing during the game, which results in the shoe sporting pops of orange against a combination of black and white. As a nod to the original releases, the shoes will come unlaced, just in case you want to switch to white laces instead of black – a nice touch. More often than not, the original colourways are the best, but we reckon this has the potential to be a future classic.
The AIR JORDAN 1 SHATTERED BACKBOARD is scheduled to drop on SATURDAY 27 JUNE and will be available via our RELEASE PAGE; which you can link to below.
