Nike Air Foamposite One “Shattered Backboard” Rumored For This Fall
A “Shattered Backboard” Nike Air Foamposite One is reportedly heading to retailers this Fall, joining the third iteration of the “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1.
Similar to the original Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard” and the “Shattered “Away” rendition that came after it, the kicks will reportedly stick to the black and orange color scheme – which will be a fitting drop right around Halloween.
Images of the Shattered Backboard Foams have not yet surfaced, but early reports suggest the kicks will be available on November 8 for the retail price of $230.
The design is inspired by the orange and black jersey that Michael Jordan wore during a 1985 exhibition game in Italy, in which MJ threw down a dunk that broke the backboard.
“Glass was everywhere. The backboard exploded. I’m looking at his eyes, his ears…looking for little bits of glass,” remembers Howard White, VP of Jordan Brand. “In the moment, it was wild. It was a little scary, because we didn’t know where the glass was going. They were playing and then there was that moment. I don’t know of any moment where one can detect something otherworldly has happened, but that one has become something grand. For MJ, though, it was just a moment in the game.”
