AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG – Reverse Shattered Backboard 2016 Overview
The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Reverse Shattered Backboard” was released in 2016 as a follow-up to the original color concept. This Jordan 1 takes inspiration from the colors of a uniform that Michael Jordan wore while participating in an exhibition game in Italy in 1985. In the game, Jordan broke a plexiglass backboard after a dunk.
The black, orange, and white color scheme was first used on the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” in 2015 and then returned in this second “Reverse Shattered Backboard” iteration, which features more orange and less black on the leather paneling. The colorway is also known as “Shattered Backboard Away.” Just like the original, the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Reverse Shattered Backboard” has become one of the most coveted releases for the model ever.
