words // Gregory Williams:
From countless accolades to six championship rings, Michael Jordan truly captivated audiences with his incredible skills throughout his tenure in the NBA. Taking a trip back in time, Jordan Brand pays homage to the time MJ brought the house down with this “Shattered Backboard” take on the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. Pulling its inspiration from the jersey Jordan wore during an exhibition in 1985, in Italy, black mutes the toe and Swooshes while team orange highlights the toebox, heel and outsole. Complete with a balancing shade of white, for contrastive measures, this rim-rocking take on the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is tentatively set to release on May 23rd. Will you be copping these when they drop next month? Drop us a line in the comments section below, and be sure to keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more info.
