Air Jordan Retro 5 - "Quai 54"
When the images of the "Tokyo23" Air Jordan Retro 5 first surfaced, some speculated that it could be linked to the Jordan Brand's Quai 54 Basketball Tournament in France due to a similarity in colorway between the shoe and special releases for last year's event. However, that look is now being inherited by the brand's hoops tournament in Japan. Quai 54 is getting an all-new look this year, and we have the first images of one of the drops from that collection for you today.
Featuring what appears to be a premium tumbled white leather upper, the shoe is accented by hits of radiant green on the lace tabs, Jumpman branding and the Quai54 embroidery on the heel. Black works the inner liner and midsole, while metallic silver is used for the reflective tongue and "teeth" design. A July 2nd release date is currently assigned to these.
