The new Jordan 5 Total Orange is bringing back the Jordan Shattered Backboard to the scene! The familiar colorway is back to break the industry in a completely reconstituted build. We love Jordans with a good background story. And boyyy does this colorway have a story for the movie screens!Â
On the 25th of August, 1985; Michael Jordan participated in an exhibition game in Trieste, Italy. This was right after his first season with the Chicago Bulls and it was between Stefanel Trieste and Juve Caserta. He went to score 30 points! BUT, the real show-stopper was the thunderous SLAM DUNK! A dunk so powerful that it completely shattered the glass backboard. And so, the shattered backboard was born!
This is the story that propelled the hype, propelled Jordan, and propelled the resale! This makes this colorway an all-time cop! So, what do we know about the new Air Jordan 5 Total Orange – AKA Shattered Backboard? Keep reading to find out more.
