The Air Jordan 1 OG "Shattered Backboard 3.0" is the third release in the highly sought after "Shattered Backboard" colorway from Air Jordan 1.
The "Shattered Backboard" theme draws inspiration from an exhibition match in Italy that Michael Jordan played in during his rookie season.
During the match, Jordan famously broke the glass on the backboard after a monstrous dunk. The first two iterations of the "Shattered Backboard" were a success thanks to the use of fine materials and the eye-catching orange and black coloring.
The "Shattered Backboard 3.0" is in line with previous versions of the sneaker and adds new design features to stand out on its own. One noticeable difference is that a crinkled glossy patent leather upper replaces the leather found on the first two "Shattered Backboard" models.
The black crinkled shiny leather is featured on the center panel, on the toe and on the ankle collar. Pale Vanilla Starfish Crinkled Shiny Leather adds bursts of color around the toe, quarter panel, Swoosh and side heel.
A black leather Wings logo is located near the collar. A vintage-inspired yellow sole gives the sneaker a lovingly worn look. Release date: Fall 2019.
