After Russell Westbrook gave us a sneak peek, our first look at the Air Jordan 31 Shattered Backboard in its entirety is now revealed.

As its official moniker suggests, this particular colorway on the basketball sneaker is simply inspired by the popular Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard”, a nod to MJ’s infamous dunk back in 1985 which simply shattered the backboard.

The sneaker is essentially draped in a similar color scheme, with black and orange dominant across its woven and synthetic leather upper, alongside pops of white utilized for the faded swoosh. In addition a “Shattered Backboard” graphic is evident on the inner tongues to further coordinate with its respective, while it’s topped off by gum rubber translucent outsoles.

Retailing for $185, you can expect to find this standout pair at select JB and Nike accounts starting October 1st.

The model has been rendered in appealing colorways so far and this is another solid option to come. This pair might be the best one so far, maybe because of the gum bottom.
