Michael Jordan is known for many things on the basketball court. Some might forget that he broke a backboard during a game. It wasn’t in an NBA game or in college. This shattering event took place during a Nike exhibition match played in Italy in 1985. To bring back that memory the Jordan Brand created the Air Jordan I “Shattered Backboard.”

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG has a black/white/orange colorway to match the uniform that Michael wore during the game. It also has a graphic insole that references his high-flying, glass-shattering maneuver. The Jordan release date for the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” is currently set for June 27 and will cost you $160.
