Jordan Nu 1 Shattered Backboard: A Throwback To Iconic Moments

 In Jordan, Nike

Looks like Jordan Brand has been keeping some of the best drops till the end. And one of those hot releases will be the Air Jordan Nu 1 Shattered Backboard. Now, that’s how you end the year on a high note! So, let’s see what this Jordan is all about, shall we?


A Backstory On The Shattered Backboard Colorway

So, the Jordan Nu 1 Shattered Backboard takes inspo from Michael Jordan’s ’86 uniform colors when he was wearing black, white, and orange during an exhibition game in Italy. During that game, MJ went full Hulk and did a dunk so powerful he shattered the glass backboard! And that’s where the name and colorway came from. Straight-up iconic!

In 2015, Jordan Brand decided to drop the very first version of the Shattered Backboard AJ1. And believe it or not, as epic as it is, many slept on that OG Jordan 1 High

However, this colorway managed to make its way up the sneaker hierarchy in no time, until it became the crazy popular colorway it is today. Also, it’s one of the best sellers for non-original Jordan 1 colors. And so, over the years, we’ve seen different riffs on this theme. And not one ever disappointed.

For starters, you’ve got a similar orange vibe on the heel and sole, with black ruling the shoe’s base. White leather covers the toe box and the Wings-debossed side panels. As for the finishing touch, an eye-catching orange rubber sole with a cool icy blue tread for a solid grip.
