A young Michael Jordan was playing in an exhibition game in Italy following his NBA rookie season, and his Airness would go on to cement his high-flying reputation with a monster jam that pulverized the backboard. It's a moment that's been immortalized by the upcoming Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard Away," itself a sequel to last year's original. The legend comes full circle with the most recent Air Jordan silhouette, which is set to arrive carrying the same "Shattered Backboard" silhouette. Look for this special-edition Air Jordan XXXI to hit Nike SNKRS on September 8th.
