The long wait is finally coming to an end. In a few weeks, the most anticipated sneaker releases in recent history will take place on 2nd October 2021. The sneaker in question is a product of the most prestigious brand in sneaker culture, Air Jordan. Yes, you heard right! Air Jordan is adding another sneaker to its line of sports shoes and goes by the name Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard.
This Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard release has been the talk of the town for a while now, and without a doubt, the sneaker will be a smash hit. If you are a sneakerhead, make sure you mark the calendar now so that you don’t miss out on the upcoming release!
Design of Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard
This new sneaker, Jordan 5, features an upper designed for maximum durability along with a high-top collar that provides ankle support during play. It will also come dressed in sail, metallic silver, orange blaze, and a scheme of black color. Other details include shark teeth and silver reflective tongues along with the midsole. Plus, an orange Jumpman logo, which matches the top of the translucent outsole of the midsole.
The Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard will probably be more popular than the Jordan 4 Snakeskin sneakers, which came out five years ago. This is due to the fact that more sneakerheads are into shoes like Air Jordans rather than Air Force Ones.
Again, the Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboards will be the biggest release in Air Jordan history, but it remains to be seen if they will surpass the Jordan 11 Space jam of 2016. According to Nike’s Brand President Trevor, Space Jam 11 was the biggest launch in the company’s history, a fact that confirmed the hype that surrounded the sneaker.
History Behind Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard
The Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard takes its name from one of Michael Jordan’s most significant moments on the court when he jumped right up into the air from almost midcourt and dunked the ball with authority right onto the backboard shattering it instantly.
Even though there are video shots of this momentous moment, Air Jordan and Nike are uniquely paying homage to that moment by designing this top sneaker with the Air Jordan Shattered Backboard logo.
How Much will this Sneaker Cost?
It’s rumored the sneaker will cost over $250. However, that remains unconfirmed for now. Those interested in buying this sneaker need to check the brand’s official site regularly for any updates.
This Air Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard is definitely a release you do not want to miss. And as usual, enthusiasts around the world will want the sneaker since most sports shoe lovers want one with a Jordan logo. This will be so considering the previous releases, which have always been a success in the market.
To sum up, the release of Jordan 5 Shattered Backboard will be a further testament that the Jordan brand is still going strong and very capable of producing quality footwear to its fans.
