With Jordan’s latest Quai 54 Collection set to release soon, we’ve been given an official look at one of its four footwear silhouettes — namely the AJ1 Low. Combining a classic Jordan Brand color scheme with Quai 54-specific details and a signature print, this low-cut AJ1 aims to “embody the strength of Quai 54 and Parisian streetball,” according to Nike SNKRS.
Uppers present a time-honored mix of white leather and black nubuck: the former appears on toeboxes and quarter panels while the latter hits mudguards, eyestays, heels and Swooshes. Most of the signature details are centered around the shoe’s rear, namely a white, gray and red collar pattern that’s inspired by Paris’ West African community and a co-branded Quai 54/ Air Jordan badge delicately pinned to the heel. Black nylon tongues get in on the special branded mix as well, replacing the standard Michael Jordan #23 hit on the lace keeper with a red “54” graphic. A standard white Jumpman logo returns on the tongue, insoles feature a print to match the collar and white midsoles work with translucent cherry red outsoles to complete the look.
The Air Jordan 1 Low “Quai 54” is set to release in Paris on July 8. Its MSRP is set at $120 USD.
