A shoe made for transitional wears for a dual sport athlete unlike any other, Bo Jackson, the Trainer III largely made sense for the multi-sport phenom yet it was equally such a sartorial achievement that its style element ranked nearly as high as its performance abilities.
First released in 1988 and retro’ed in 2000, 2009 and 2015, the shoe recently emerged as an inspirational figure for the LeBron Watch, acting as a design focal point for the LeBron 16 “Medicine Ball.”
Nike, though — and right on time — is prepping another retro release of the classic Air Trainer III later this month. All the hype surrounding James’ pair actualized two truths: one being that it fueled anticipation for LeBron’s shoe, and another by restoring the eternal relevance of the OG. However, all that said, when the retro released back in 2015, they didn’t sell through. Some pairs sat, eventually, sadly, and disrespectfully so, hitting the sales rack.
There’s always discussion surrounding the best original Air Jordan 1 colorways, nowadays there’s an equal amount of talk regarding the best non-OG 1s. By in large, the very-first “Shattered Backboard” tends to land somewhere near the top of that list. As it should.
Jordan Brand, keen on the fact that the Shattered Backboard is a trending style in tumbled leather or satin, looks to have plans to release a third colorway of the coveted style in 2019.
This third pair is reported to remove the white balancer and simply feature a black and orange upper.
Those same reports indicate the tentatively titled Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0” will release during the fall/winter 2019 season.
Its been reported that the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0” will release this October. The drop is tentatively scheduled for October 26, 2019. Read more
