The "Shattered Backboard" theme debuted on the Air Jordan 1 High in June 2015 as a tribute to Michael Jordan's backboard-shattering dunk during a 1985 Nike exhibition game in Italy with his orange jerseys providing inspiration for the bold color scheme. Although this new low-top colorway is not yet confirmed as part of the theme, it's expected to feature a similar colorway. Jordan Brand‘s newest Air Jordan 1 Low OG has been given one of the brand’s most coveted colorways: “Shattered Backboard.” After getting a first look at this iteration two weeks ago, Jordan Brand has unveiled official images of the shoe.
This Air Jordan 1 Low opting for a white leather upper that's paired with vibrant orange overlays along with a black Swoosh appearing on the sides. The look continues with a white midsole and an orange outsole.Starting at the top of the shoe is a small orange “Nike” tag that pops against the white leather tongue. Most of the uppers sport a two-toned design, complemented by black accents — the laces and main Swoosh. Vibrant orange panels appear along the eyelets, heel, forefoot and toecap, while white full-grain leather shows up around the sidewalls and toebox. All of these details rest over a crisp white midsole underscored by a thin orange outsole.
This Nike Kobe 5 Protro Bruce Lee basketball shoe features a yellow upper inspired by the bodysuit worn in “The Game of Death” with black details. Small red elements are found on the medial and heel, as well as Kobe’s signature. The pair sits atop an Air Zoom unit in the forefoot.Shiny, pitch-black material draped around the entire upper, allowing the vibrance of the orange overlays take away the spotlight! Besides, laces flaunt a fiery look that can light the tracks on fire! Similarly, the toe box, side panels, and heels also come done in orange. The rest of the runner gives off a dark black aesthetic. Nike’s signature Swoosh logo hits the sidewalls, and Kobe’s signature sheath logo appears on the tongues, in metallic silver. Also, subtle tints of red also hit the heels, forefoot, and Kobe’s autograph printed onto the heels.
