It’s been two years since Jordan Brand dropped a Retro 1 High that paid homage to a moment in MJ’s history and it came in traditional style with some not so traditional colors. If you need a little history lesson on the ‘Shattered Backboard’ colorway, the inspiration behind it came from the uniform colors worn by MJ in 1986 when he shattered a glass backboard while dunking in an Italian exhibition game. For the lucky ones who were able to get their hands on a pair back when they released have to attribute their love of the shoe to the quality that was put into it. If you’ve been itching for more pairs that come with that same quality, then the wait is almost over.
2018 has been huge in the Jordan realm as they have been putting a lot of energy and focus behind the female consumer, after all, the future is female. Now, JB is bringing some insane heat to the streets for the ladies that most guys will be jealous of. Plush materials like satin and tumbled premium leather come together to create the Women’s Air Jordan Retro 1 High Satin ‘Shattered Backboard’. The only other Jordan 1’s to get the satin treatment are the ‘Bred’ and ‘Royal’ colorway that dropped in very limited numbers last year. With the focus being on women for this style, these are a certified banger for any outfit that you put together. This new-age classic features the same color-blocking and high-quality tumbled leather materials while adding the attractive satin finish on the toe-box, heel, and ankle collar sets the bar very high for future projects.
If these are on your radar then you can grab your pair of the Women’s Air Jordan Retro 1 High Satin ‘Shattered Backboard’ on May 5th at Finishline.com.
