A Closer Look at the Air Jordan 8 Quai 54 in Paris

The Air Jordan 8 Quai 54 is the latest retro release from Jordan Brand to celebrate the Parisian hoops tournament.

Taking place each June, the streetball summit overseas has inspired many Jordan drops with the 8 sleekly retooled for outdoor action.

Based in black, a nubuck upper is complemented by mesh underlays. An iridescent effect on the midsole rests above an icy outsole and below a translucent heel counter. Geometric print scales the heel while fuzzy tongue branding remains in tact.

While in Paris for Jordan Brand’s Quai 54 festivities, we were able to get our hands on a hair pair as they’re readily available at both Foot Locker and Shipes.

Recently, an alternate pair in white emerged, using the same geometric pattern but flipping the script in regards to tone and blocking.
