After teasing its upcoming Air Jordan VIII “Quai 54” just weeks ago, Nike has now revealed the details surrounding the shoe’s upcoming release. The new take on the iconic Michael Jordan sneaker offers an ode to the iconic Paris-based streetball tournament that is held every year, highlighting the sport of basketball and its long-standing connection with hip-hop culture.
The sneaker itself retains a unique bricolage of materials including black suede, leather, and a mesh textile — all of which appear on the upper of the shoe. Inspired by the brand’s multicolored logo, pops of color arrive in vibrant geometric patterns that have been highlighted on the heel and ankle regions, with 3D chenille Jumpman logos emblazoned on the tongue tabs. The right sneaker’s Jumpman branding is encircled by red, blue, and white, while the left is surrounded by green, red, and yellow. This is all met with an icy blue outsole that features more colored hits on the underfoot.
You can check out the official photos of the Air Jordan VIII “Quai 54” in the gallery above. If you’re interested in picking a pair up, the shoes will release on Nike SNKRS’ UK web store on June 15 for £164.95 GBP (approximately $210 USD). A global release is expected shortly after.
