The Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” surprised a lot of people when it debuted back in June of 2015 due to its premium quality throughout including a beautiful off-white tumbled leather base. Inspired by an exhibition game in Italy where Michael Jordan actually broke a backboard with one of his high-flying dunks, the colorway was derived from the orange and black uniforms worn back in the summer of 1986. Now a new alternate Air Jordan 1 Reverse Shattered Backboard is slated to release this October.
The original Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard more closely resembled the color-blocking of the Black Toe 1s, while this upcoming pair ditches the black panels for more of a “Chicago” vibe. The Starfish orange accent color is back as is the Sail off-white base. But will the quality still be up to par? Check out a full view after the break and stay tuned for an official release date right here on Sneaker News.
