The third rendition of the SBBs, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shattered Backboard 3.0,” is slated to make its official debut at retailers this weekend. Inspired by Michael Jordan’s famous slam dunk during a Nike exhibition tour game in 1985 which shattered a backboard, the shoe is covered in a two-tone theme of black and orange. The sneaker’s glossy leather construction is detailed with a crinkled texture to evoke the shattered glass theme, while a Pale Vanilla rubber sole tops off the design.

Demanding attention right away, this Air Jordan 1 Mod gets covered in a full Metallic Silver leather construction all throughout the upper with Racer Pink hitting the branding on the tongue and ankle. Down below things get even flashier as we see a tri-colored orange/pink rubber midsole/outsole to cap off the look. This Air Jordan 1 Mid is arriving at select retailers now for $90.
Previously nicknamed “Who Said Man Was Not Meant To Fly,” this variation of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is officially dubbed “Bloodline,” as revealed via Jordan Brand. Also part of the “Fearless Ones” campaign, the model is inspired by JB’s 1985 commercial, “Who Said Man Was Not Meant To Fly” featuring Michael Jordan. Sporting the Chicago Bulls’ signature colors, the silhouette is composed of premium tumbled leather – donning white on the side panels, tongue and toe box. Contrasting black is applied throughout via overlays, while red trimming across its entire upper and rubber outsole complete the Bulls theme. Finally, “Nike Air” tongues and the words “Who Said Man Was Not Meant To Fly” printed on the insoles rounds out the design.
Yet another exclusive AJ 1 as part of the Air Jordan 1 “Fearless Ones” collection is the FACETASM x Air Jordan 1 Mid “Fearless.” This rendition of the silhouette by the Japanese label is inspired by their expression of Tokyo, Donning a clean profile with a white leather upper, alongside light blue and navy overlays, the model is also detailed with a crinkled look throughout.
