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
Back in 1995, in accordance with the release of the Air Jordan 10 during the 1994-95 NBA season, Nike released its very first City Pack series. It’s something that’s now done year in and year out. Yet. it’s never really been done quite as well as it was back in the mid-’90s.
Colored in a wide array of shades that coincide with the timeframe in which the style’s moniker was created, this ’90s inspired theme is punctuated with “Dream It, Do It” on the tongue.
Interestingly, and very pointed, is the vintage Coogi sweater-esque theme of the shoe and its March 9th release date. As any good Hip-Hop fan would know, it’s the date the Notorious B.I.G. passed. Could there be a connection? Possibly. But if nothing else, the coincidence is worthy of a second thought.
Take a look at the Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It” below. Read more

Over the last few years, Jordan Brand’s celebrated holiday offering has largely been anchored by adoring Air Jordan 11 releases. The latter months of 2018 likely won’t stray from that tradition. However, one of the most anticipated Air Jordan 11s of this year won’t release in November or December.
Taking on “Blackout” and “Prom Night” themes before being officially referenced at the Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” edition, the noir centric style takes its inspiration from the shoe’s ability to play both on court and in formal settings.
Often times brand aficionados have laced up Air Jordan 11s at prom and other ‘tux and tennis’ functions. Thus, the Air Jordan 11 over time has become something of a dressy sneaker when given the opportunity. By all measures a premium iteration of the Air Jordan 11, the upper is enhanced with suede materials alongside a metal Jumpman logo and laces inspired by graduation cords.
The Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” will release on May 26th and retail or $220. Read more
