It’s fair to say that Nike have been relentless in their update of OG colourways and classic styles for 2019. Set to continue that trend is the Jordan 1 ‘Shattered Backboard 3.0’.

It was first leaked several months ago yet images have been scarce. Not until now do we finally get to see what’s in store for this updated model. First on-foot shots were recently leaked and if these are in fact legitimate, some of you might be disappointed!



After waiting so long for these initial images, it might be somewhat underwhelming to see the final result. Unlike the OG, the AJ1 ‘Shattered Backboard 3.0’ looks to feature patent leather.

This is clearly just too shiny for some of you. One user commented, “them mfs soaked in vaseline,” whilst another pointed out, “Oh man, they really went a blew a 3-1 lead there.”



Jumpman enthusiasts should still appreciate that vibrant blend of orange against those black leather uppers.

Here is a shoe that celebrates a legendary moment in basketball. It was during a game back in 1985 that Michael Jordan dunked so hard, he smashed the backboard. The shoes he was wearing at the time became legendary, so much so that we’re stilled gassed at the idea of this comeback.



The Jordan 1 ‘Shattered Backboard 3’ is set to release on October 26th. In the meantime, take a look at more of the latest and upcoming Jordan 1 styles!
