Known as one of the most sought-after contemporary Air Jordan 1s, the ‘Shattered Backboard’ colourway looks set for a comeback in 3.0 form in 2019. Following the successful ‘Reverse Shattered Backboards’ from 2016 and ‘Satin Shattered Backboards’ from 2018, the new SBB 3.0 shapes as one of the biggest AJ1 drops of the year.
Still no official shots, but the leaked colour code promises us a black, ‘Pale Vanilla’, and ‘Starfish’ combination (shout-outs to zsneakerheadz for the mock-up). Based off MJ’s orange and black uniform worn in a 1986 Italian exhibition game when he literally shattered the backboard while dunking, the first SBB release is a fan-favourite due to its famous high-quality leather construction. Jordan Brand will do well to get close to the same level of quality, but OG heads will have their fingers crossed.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Shattered Backboard 3.0’ releases on October 4 at select Jordan Brand retailers and NDC for $160 USD. More news and pics to come!
