You Know What… It’s Story Time!

It’s Trieste, Italy, 1985. Michael Jordan is playing an exhibition game hosted by Nike, with two local clubs. He was wearing the black and orange Stefanel Trieste jersey when the unforgettable moment took place. While finishing off a pretty artistic dunk, an extra fraction of a second on that ring made Michael Jordan shatter the backboard. It was raining glass on the heads of the players which made it a spectacular moment!

A History of Shattered Backboard Jordans

Okay so, Jordan Brand is naturally all about storytelling and nostalgia. So of course, they jumped at the first opportunity and dropped several Shattered Backboard Jordans! The first pair dropped back in 2015 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic event. Today, it’s worth $1,500 on average off the resale market!

Two years later, we got the reverse SBB Jordan 1 with a pretty cool orange upper. You can get that for around $1,100, which is makes it a must-have in a sneaker collection! Fast forward to 2018, and women’s exclusive Shattered Backboard Jordans 1 dropped with a satin touch. These babies are worth $660 on average at the aftermarket. Last but not least, the 2019 SBBs are worth $392 today! Not too shabby for a weird version of the kicks.

It’s 2021, and the Shattered Backboard Jordans Are Back!

Although we’re not getting an AJ1, the upcoming Jordan 5 colorway is a must-have for sneakerheads. The kicks feature an all-white leather and mesh upper,  with grey splattered shark teeth on the midsole. The rest of the midsole rocks the signature black and orange colors! The kicks are certainly a sight to look at and we’re loving every bit of them.
