After plenty of chatter about the sneakers in recent weeks, the actual Quai 54 Basketball Tournament is being held in Paris, France this weekend. In addition to on-court action featuring players from around the world, big Jordan-associated names like Ray Allen and Fabolous are in attendance for the festivities as well. The Jordan Brand has been keeping us up to date with Quai 54 happenings throughout the weekend on their Twitter account, even giving us a look at the event mascot's sneakers, which happen to be pretty sick.
Here's a look at the mascot edition "Quai 54" Air Jordan Retro 5. For the most part, it looks exactly like the actual shoe, minus modified mesh paneling, a non 3M reflective tongue, the lack of lateral midsole "teeth" and the Quai 54 logo being moved to the heel.
Will any persistent collectors get their hands on the mascot Retro 5? Perhaps they'll end up in collections like the Bugs Bunny "Hare" Air Jordan 7s in existence. Only time will tell - in the meantime, check out more photos below.
