Jordan Brand is gearing up for its fourth “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1 drop next month, and ahead of its highly anticipated release, Flight Club has shared a better look at the upcoming sneaker.
The “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1 is one of the most popular non-original color schemes that references the uniform that Michael Jordan wore during a Nike basketball exhibition game that took place in Italy in 1985, where he attempted a dunk and broke the backboard causing the glass to shatter. This latest rendition gives the shoe a slight sheen with a premium patent leather upper dressed in its orange and black color scheme. Completing the look is a cream-colored midsole and rubber outsole.
