This Shattered Backboard inspired 1 flips the colorway to the away teams colors during Michael’s memorable moment. The Jordans 2017 shoe features a premium leather Sail and Starfish upper, Black swoosh, White midsole and a Starfish outsole.
The Jumpman is constantly searching for ways to tell new stories instead of just re-releasing old classics. So in 2015, currently celebrating 30 years of the legend of Michael Jordan, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the brand is delving into seemingly random and insignificant events to give us something new. That’s how the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” came into existence.In the summer of 1986, MJ took his talents to Italy for an exhibition game in which he shattered a backboard during an acrobatic slam. Based on the vibrant uniforms worn during the game, this Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG dons a Black Toe look, swapping out the traditional Chicago red accents for orange. The shoe even harkens back to the original releases by coming unlaced just incase you want to swap in a pair of white laces.
