With the return of the Quai 54 tournament this year, Jordan Brand and the French streetball event’s co-founders Hammadoun Sidibé and Thibaut de Longeville have teamed up for a collection that fuses West African prints with Parisian culture. Among the collection is an Air Jordan 11 CMFT Low that uses an understated color palette to create a mix of patterns.
The upper and tongue are primarily composed of white mesh that forms translucent windows near the sides as added details. Overlays extending from the toe to the midfoot see patterns of black and white stripes—both vertical and horizontal—delivering an inverted look. These stripes also appear on the collection’s Air Jordan 35. Additionally, the lateral side features a small red overlay and a black “Q” logo. This color scheme continues onto the lace loops and inside, which are clad in a geometric print. Similar to the aforementioned AJ 35, icy soles are the final touch to this basketball-meets-lifestyle silhouette.
