Air Jordan “Shattered Backboard” Releases This Weekend


Air Jordan Shattered Backboard Pack

Back in 2015, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard to great acclaim. The instant-classic orange-and-black colorway was inspired by the uniform Michael Jordan wore when, during an exhibition game in Italy following his rookie season, he shattered a backboard while dunking on a helpless opponent. This weekend, the theme returns, with two Air Jordan Shattered Backboard colorways — on the first and last AJ models.

The Air Jordan 1 High Shattered Backboard Away embraces a similar look to its progenitor, but dials up the orange and down the black, yielding a brighter, bolder look that could well be the equal of the original. Being of the coveted “OG” designation, the shoe will feature “NIKE AIR” branding on the tongue and a Jumpmanless heel.

The Air Jordan XXX1 Shattered Backboard, meanwhile, doesn’t deviate much from the original Shattered AJ1. That same orange and black are transposed directly onto the XXX1’s knit-and-leather upper, less the white accents. The result? Maybe the best XXX1 to date.

Both Air Jordan Shattered Backboard pieces release Saturday, October 8, at retailers nationwide. Online accounts will have them at 10am EDT/7am PDT. Here’s the Footlocker.com purchase link for the AJ1 and here’s the link for the XXX1.
