Usually when you think of Italy and Jordan Brand, the Air Jordan 2 comes to mind given the silhouette’s focus on premium quality and luxury aesthetics inspired by the country’s fashion industry. That’s not the case here though, as the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” hits retailers this weekend, taking cues from a forgotten exhibition game during MJ’s off-season after his rookie year. He broke a backboard during one of his dunks, and the orange and black seen in this release is in honor of the sponsored uniform Jordan wore during the game. Continue onward for a better view of the latest Air Jordan 1 colorway and know that you can always try your luck securing this pair on eBay.
