It’s been a over a year since the ‘Shattered Backboard’ released and now sneakerheads everywhere will have another opportunity to cop one of the biggest releases of last year.

The ‘Shattered Backboard’ released in limited quantities on June 27, 2015 at a set price of $160. The story behind the name of the shoe comes from Michael Jordan‘s dunk in an exhibition game in Italy in 1985, where he literally shattered the backboard after a filthy dunk.

With a new sneaker raffle system at sneaker boutique afew, the sought after Air Jordan 1’s will release through an online raffle. You can sign up for the raffle here. The shoe will return in its original black, white and orange colorway. Check out the video below of MJ shattering the backboard at a Nike event in ’85.
