In a baton passing of sorts, the fresh faced Air Jordan XXXI is infused with a colourway rich in Jumpman history. The ‘Shattered Backboard’ combo references the time the GOAT – dressed in orange and black – caused a dunk-fuelled glass shower in an Italian exhibition match. The colourway has previously graced an Air Jordan 1 and more recently the ‘Reverse Shattered Backboard’. Now the newest Jordan returns to the revelled moment and sees the orange and black combo play out across its Flyweave upper. Adding a little razzle-dazzle, the XXXI is finished with a translucent gum sole and a linear backboard graphic behind the tongue.
The Air Jordan XXXI 'Shattered Backboard' hasn't got an official release date yet. Stay tuned Jordan fans.
