Jordan Brand has presented the 2020 iteration of its annual Quai 54 collection, centered around new takes on the Air Jordan 6 and Air Jordan 1 Low. Based in Paris, Quai 54 is the biggest streetball tournament in the world, played under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower and drawing over 20,000 fans who mingle with NBA royalty like Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony.
Past Quai 54 collections from the Jumpman have been centered around bright neon hues (2018) and Parisian patterns (2019), but this year’s installment is an earthy mix of “Baroque Brown,” “Sail” and “Team Orange” that’s used for a striking graphic print. Both the Air Jordan 6 and Air Jordan 1 Low feature this print prominently on their uppers, and surround it with supple sail leather for a look that’s simultaneously sporty and elegant. 6s use OG Nike Air branding on the heel while the low-cut Air Jordan 1 opts for a ball-and-wings logo. Each also serves up a gum sole, and works in slight pops of red for a dash of vibrance. A Break slide uses the print on its strap, places a red Q54 logo front and center, and boasts a footbed with wavy lines inspired by the Air Jordan 10‘s outsole.
There’s also a full set of apparel, each piece of which prominently features the collection’s printed motifs. A windbreaker with a packable hood serves as a perfect shell for two T-shirts: one with a bar-style logo print, the other with a simple Quai 54 graphic. A tank top melds the style of both tees together, and matching shorts round out the offerings.
Although the tournament itself may have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 coronavirus — the first time since its founding in 2002 that it hasn’t taken place — the Jordan Brand x Quai 54 collection will release on July 18 at retailers like Overkill. Prices range from $30-$190 USD.
