Inspired by one of Michael Jordan’s dunks in a 1985 overseas exhibition game that left the backboard in pieces, the “Shattered Backboard” colorway is making its return to the Air Jordan 1 this month. Although previous makeovers have certainly gained a measurable amount of admiration amongst sneakerheads across the globe, this forthcoming 3.0 offering has certainly been the most polarizing variation to date due to its newfound aesthetic. Arriving in its signature black and orange color scheme, this rendition swaps out its usual smooth leather textures and opts for a wrinkled patent leather construction set upon the upper and is contrasted down below with an outsole doused in pale vanilla. Grab a detailed look here below at the grade school silhouette here below, and expect these to release for $120 alongside the adult pair on October 26th on Nike.com and at select retailers.
