It’s hard not to fall in love with the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Quai 54” as it releases July of 2017. If you’re looking for something a little different without going too brash or bold about it, this pair might just be the perfect ones for you.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Quai 54
Size Run: Mens
Color: Black/Italy Blue-University Red
Style Code: AH1040-054
Release Date: July 8, 2017
Color and Design
The most prominent thing about these kicks is the color. The official shades are black, Italy blue, and university red. However, the whole body is actually done in black with a fur-like exterior that tells you of outstanding texture and materials used.
Adding spice to the black design are the blue and red covers, beautifully divided between the two shoes. That’s right – the left shoe is highlighted with Italy blue while the right side comes in University Red. This creates a very becoming design that fools people into thinking you’re wearing two different shoes at the same time! Of course, if they know anything about Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Quai 54” then they’d instantly know that this isn’t the case.
Adding a bit more twist to their color choices, AJ decided to swap the color logo for the shoes. Hence, the tongue of the left shoe displays a University red logo while the right shoe offers an Italy blue shade of the same icon. Confused yet? Fortunately, Air Jordan did that design so cleanly that there’s really zero room to complain.
The color accents are mainly confined to the outsole and the mouth portion of the kicks. You can also see a Swoosh logo along the quarter panel but done in the same basic black of the design. Since the logo is made of a similar material and stitched onto the surface, you can instantly see the logo despite the lack of contrasting colors.
Price and Release
As mentioned, the kicks will be available on July 8, 2017 with a price tag of just $160! That’s definitely a pocket-friendly price tag considering how many AJ releases today cost around $190 and upwards. Thus, if you’re looking for a cheap classic, you definitely can’t go wrong with this pair.
All in all, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Quai 54” is a good buy for anyone in the market for a steady and soothing black with just a slight accent of color to hint on their inner wildness. If you’re a fan of AJ and want these kicks, make sure you reserve yours before the stores run out!
