Initially released in 2015, the Air Jordan I Shattered Backboard (a never-before-seen colorway inspired by an exhibition game in Italy) became an instant classic. The shoe returns May 5 as the Air Jordan I Satin Shattered Backboard — in women’s sizing and using the same tumbled Sail leather on the mid-panel matched with new satin blocking and a translucent outsole.  

Created by a team of Nike women’s designers, The 1 Reimagined collection realized all-new articulations of the Air Jordan I and Air Force 1. The Air Jordan I Rebel twisted the upper and lace system to the side and added a zipper, creating a new mashup of heritage, style and function. After debuting in a neutral Cream White colorway and coming later in a tonal Cinder Orange, the Air Jordan I Rebel now adopts one of the colorways most deeply associated with AJI history, the Chicago Red/Black/White.  

A second new colorway, the Top 3, blends three iconic colorways: Chicago, Bred and Royal.

The Air Jordan I Satin Shattered Backboard releases on May 5 and the Air Jordan I Rebel Chicago and Top 3 release on May 19. See more on
