Jordan Brand continues to link history to newer releases and the latest with the ‘Shattered Backboard Air Jordan XXX1 along with the Air Jordan 1. Both pairs are inspired by the jersey Michael Jordan wore during the exhibition game in Italy which he shattered the backboard. Years later, the original shoes has leaked.

This information along with photos came from Jordan Brand inside J23App. They have said this is the original ‘Chicago’ Air Jordan 1 from 1985 that Michael Jordan wore destroying the backboard in Italy. While you can see some deterioration throughout due to age, what is unique is on the bottom. The sole actually has a gash along with shards of glass from the exhibition game.
