Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shattered Backboard 3.0”
The Air Jordan 1 OG “Shattered Backboard 3.0” is the third release of the immensely sought-after “Shattered Backboard” colorway of the Air Jordan 1. The “Shattered Backboard” theme draws inspiration from an exhibition game in Italy in which Michael Jordan played during his rookie season. During the game, Jordan famously broke the glass of the backboard following a monstrous dunk. The first two iterations of the “Shattered Backboard” were a success due to their use of premium materials and eye-catching orange and black colorways. The “Shattered Backboard 3.0” falls in line with previous versions of the sneaker and adds new design features to stand out on its own. One noticeable difference is that a crinkled glossy patent leather upper replaces the leather found on the first two “Shattered Backboard” models. The black crinkled glossy leather is featured on the mid-panel, toe, and ankle collar. Pale Vanilla Starfish crinkled glossy leather adds bursts of color around the toe, quarter panel, Swoosh, and lateral heel. A black leather Wings logo sits near the collar. A vintage-inspired yellow sole gives the sneaker a lovingly worn in appearance. Release date: Fall 2019.
