Michael Jordan’s favorite Air Jordan model, the Air Jordan 1, continues to stay in rotation each month. Today, we compare two similar-styled releases – one that debuted in 2016, and the other in 2019.
One year after launching their “Shattered Backboard” color blocking on the Air Jordan 1, Jordan Brand debuted a “Reverse Shattered Backboard” version that featured more Orange and less Black.
Recently, Jumpman released an all-new “Obsidian” colorway inspired by Michael Jordan’s college career at the University of North Carolina in a color blocking similar to the women’s exclusive “UNC Patent Leather” colorway that released in February 2019.
Check out both Air Jordan 1s, and let us know which was the better release by casting your vote below.
