Unlike the “Starfish” Air Jordan 1 Mid, this Air Jordan 1 Low is fitting of the name “Shattered Backboard”. The Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” is highly regarded amongst the sneaker community. The colorway is inspired by the uniform colors worn by Jordan in 1986 when he shattered a glass backboard while dunking in an Italian exhibition game. Now, for the first time ever, it’s releasing in a low version.

Staying true to the color blocking of the highly-coveted Air Jordan 1 that first released in 2015, the “Shattered Backboard” Low features orange leather on the heel, ankle, and toe, with white leather on the side panel.

The Air Jordan 1 Low “Shattered Backboard” is slated to release this summer with a retail price of $90.

Update (8/9/19): It’s made up of a nubuck/leather mix instead of the 100% leather construction on the AJ1 High, while a tonal ball-and-wings logo is embroidered on the heel, a white Jumpman graces the black nylon tongue, and an orange 23 logo appears smack-dab in the middle of the throa

While no official release date has been revealed, Nike has released the official images of the Air Jordan 1 Low “Shattered Backboard”, so expect a release very soon. From the photos, we can see that this version of the SBB has a few differences from the AJ1 High. The Low has black nubuck overlays instead of leather. Additional Jordan branding is also included in the low version: an embroidered Wings logo on the heel, a white Jumpman on the tongue, and the number 23 in orange on the lace lock.
