As Jordan Brand celebrates 30 years of epic moments and crowning achievements in 2015, much story telling has come by way of retro releases. This Air Jordan 1 High OG tells a story of a young Michael Jordan moment that happened while not playing on the NBA court though.
While on tour in Europe, Michael Jordan wowed crowds across the pond while bringing much attention to the sport on the global stage. In one exhibition match, MJ did what MJ did with hitting great shots, flying through the air, and, in a flash, shattered a glass backboard. The shoe sports the colors of the exhibition team uniforms which lend well to Nike’s corporate orange color that is nearly synonymous with the brand today.
The Air Jordan 1 High “Shattered Backboard” release date is coming soon next month on June 27, 2015. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for all upcoming retro Jordan releases and updates about your favorite sneakers.
