The Nike Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard" is a total throwback to 1985 when his Airness, Michael Jordan set the standard by breaking the backboard from his dunk as performed in Italy which left a mark in basketball history.
It left a mark, and so will this shoe.
An orange, black and orange retro masterpiece. The Shattered Backboard 1's is a refreshing retro treat in line with the breds and the blues laden Jordan affair. It's a distinct pop of color which was directly lifted from the jersey that his Airness rocked during that historic feat. An awesome streak of nostalgia by way of the Nike Air branding and the 1985 OG cut that is more of Chuck Taylors than basketball shoes, retro is the operative word here. Nostalgia is what we want and Nike brings it a hundredfold in the form of this shoe.
From the retro box down to the nice materials (tumble leather, anyone?) this shoe is a winner right here and has already reached retro grail status from the opinions of collectors worldwide. Combine a blast from the past with a masterful rendition of a tried and true classic and you have a winner.
If you are looking for a classic Jordan 1 to add to your collection, then this is your next target, just released recently, these are still easy to obtain just prepare your wallets. A desirable pair that reeks of quality that's worth every Peso spent.
