Be sure to get your lurk on and hopefully you can rein these in like MJ rained glass down on his opponents.
The 'Shattered Backboard Away’ Air Jordan 1 takes the colour scheme of the ‘Shattered Backboard’ and replaces some of the black components with with white leather. Paying homage to the time an orange clad MJ made it rain glass while dunking in an Italian exhibition match way back in ’85. The high-top iteration features orange ‘Starfish’ panels and outsoles with a white nylon mesh tongue. Those that missed the OG will get a second chance to cop a sneaker tribute to GOAT folklore.
