The annual Quai 54 World Streetball Championship will take place from July 23 – 24, 2016 in the heart of Paris, which means sponsor Nike and Jordan Brand launch special edition sneakers dedicated to the basketball tournament.
This wouldn’t be the Gold Blog if we didn’t focus on the golden highlight from this year’s range: the dipped in gold Nike Air Jordan II Quai 54, finished in a neutral Light Bone shade with metallic gold elements throughout. Subtle but sweet.
If previous Quai 54 releases are any indication, they will likely be exclusive to Europe, but the Gold Nike Air Jordan Quai 54 sneakers are available from July 23 online at End Clothing (£150 / $175 / €179), which ships internationally.
