Up Close: The Air Jordan 5 ‘Shattered Backboard’Release: 2 October 2021
The Jordan Brand Fall 2021 Preview brought us a slew of heater iterations, including the Air Jordan 1 ‘Pollen’, and Air Jordan 4 ‘Shimmer’. Now, the Air Jordan 5 ‘Shattered Backboard’ is gearing up to touch down soon. Ahead of next month’s release, sneakersphere insider Chris Colgan has taken to his socials to flex an up-close look at the interesting AJ5 colourway.
The upper of the Air Jordan 5 ‘Shattered Backboard’ rocks the standard build, however the usual netting seen on the lateral and medial sides has been extended around the ankle collar. It’s an interesting touch that will sure have sneakerheads divided. Most of the upper has been covered in white, with subtle hints of black on the eyelets and lining. The ‘Orange Blaze’ tone brings the ‘Shattered Backboard’ feel with splashes on the midsole and Jumpman tongue branding.
Does the Air Jordan 5 ‘Shattered Backboard’ tickle your fancy? This interesting take on the AJ5 has been locked in to drop on September 25 via Nike and selected Jumpman stockists such as Flight Club and GOAT.
