The Quai 54 Basketball Tournament is described as the "biggest meeting of streetball games" on the planet. The large international tournament hosts teams from all over the world, including the United States, France, England, Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland to name a few. The teams engage in highly competitive games consisting of two fifteen minute halves.
Giving the tournament more credibility is a sponsorship from the Jordan Brand. Over the last couple years, Jordan has created special sneaker colorways for Quai 54, and have resumed that tradition for this year's tournament. The Team Iso "Quai 54" features a perforated black nubuck and patent leather upper. Varsity Maize is seen on underlays, contrast stitching, tongue padding, branding, and midsole. What initially may go undetected is an elephant print on the quarter panels and toe. The shoe makes use of Zoom Air technology and a durable rubber outsole for street performance.
