words // Darren Griffin:
Back in 1985 when Michael Jordan was shattering backboards a la Shaquille O’Neal and Darryl Dawkins, he did so in his famous Air Jordan 1. Inspired by the uniform worn by MJ during a Nike exhibition game in Italy, the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” is vindicated with another stimulating visual today. Fashioned in a uniquely blended orange and black base, white accents finish the look of this Air Jordan 1 that’s rumored to land at Jordan Brand retails next month. Take another look below and keep it locked for official release details.
