Do you remember when Michael Jordan broke a backboard in-game?

It didn't happen in an NBA game, but rather in a Nike exhibition match played in Italy in 1985. Jordan Brand will reference that moment with this upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, which has a black/white/orange colorway to match the uniform that Michael wore during the game. It also has a graphic insole that references his high-flying, glass-shattering maneuver.

The Jordan release date for the Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard" is currently set for June 27 at a tag of $160.
