The legacy of the Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard edges on with its latest 3.0 iteration… though not as many have expected. While the first two have amassed resale numbers well above retail, the crinkled leather uppers of its newest has often been met mostly with disappointed faces. Designed in the color blocking of the iconic “Bred” and “Royal” the pair forgoes any hit of white with outsoles yellowed to match the overall tonal aesthetic. Black overlays and profiles contrast in their bright sheen, with smaller notes of the iconic orange resting across the toe box, swoosh, ankle flaps, and heel wrap. Though surely upon first glance, a welcome treat for the on-going line-up, the material modifications are sure to catch many a person off guard. Grab a detailed peek at the pair once again, and if they begin to grow on you, expect their release at select retailers and Nike.com on October 26.
