Rapper Tyler, the Creator has elevated his reach in the sneaker community this year through a new partnership with Converse, but it was another Nike, Inc.-owned brand that had the “Flower Boy” artist’s attention over the weekend.

Taking to Twitter, Tyler who also owns and operates the Golf Wang clothing line showed off what he calls his first pair of Jordan sneakers: the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shattered Backboard.”

The retro-inspired style was released in 2015 and gives first Air Jordan sneaker an orange, black and white makeover inspired by a uniform Michael Jordan wore during a 1985 exhibition game in Italy. During the match up, the legendary baller destroyed the glass hoop’s glass backboard, hence the nickname for the coveted sneakers. Check out the clip below to watch the broken backboard moment.

Notable for its limited-edition status, premium leathers and unique colorway, this “Shattered Backboard” style was one of 2015’s most sought-after sneakers and has gone on to become one of the most valuable Air Jordan 1s. The style is currently available from Stadium Goods with prices beginning at $550, with a size 8.5 listed as high as $999.

Tyler’s 2017 collaborations include several limited-edition colorways of the classic Converse One Star, along with his own Golf le Fleur signature style. All of the styles are currently sold out at retail, but can be purchased on the after market with prices ranging from $130 to around $200.
