Factory flaws can be a devastating blow to sneakerheads, however, these defects can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. Take this Air Jordan 1 ‘Reverse Shattered Backboard’ for example. From a distance, it looks like any other pair, however, when you look closer, you’ll noticed that the Swoosh is actually upside down.
A rare error from the Nike, the size US 7 shoes are valued at 900 times what it retailed for when it re-released earlier this year. Most interestingly, only one side of the pair features the upside down flaw that skyrocketed the value of the shoes.
Set to go for €125,000 (approximately £113,000), the one-of-a-kind factory flawed Air Jordan 1 ‘Reverse Shattered Backboard’ will be available via Dropout Milan in the next few weeks. While you’re here, we ask, is the Air Jordan 1 the most iconic sneaker of all time?
