Shown here are the “Crescent City” Air Jordans, which each sport vibrant colorways inspired partly by the cultural landscape of New Orleans. Everything from local jazz music to the French Quarter to the requisite Mardi Gras celebrations are all referenced by the pairs from the set. Continue reading for official images of each and watch for the Jordan Brand 2014 All-Star “Crescent City” Collection to release on February 14th, 2014.

The Jordan Crescent City collection epitomizes the colorful landscape and cultural charm of the Big Easy. The Jordan family of athletes will don the Crescent City collection throughout the weekend when East meets West. Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook will pay tribute to what makes New Orleans special through their exclusive footwear.
Celebrating the passion of a city known around the world for its food, music and enduring spirit, the collection features vibrant colorways and a pop of infrared running through the entire collection. Each shoe — including the Jordan Melo M10, Super.Fly2, CP3.VII and Jordan XX8SE — pays respect to the host city and a culture that is unlike any other in the world.
Paying homage to the historic roots of jazz music, the M10 features a brushed metallic heel counter that plays into an atomic mango phylon carrier, providing stability and support. Brass accents featured throughout the upper echo the hue of jazz instruments.
Centered on a dark powder-blue upper, the Super.Fly 2 embodies the vibrant energy of New Orleans. The two-toned crackle on the tongue and graphic texture on the toe box reference the historic architecture of the city. Sophisticated gold stitching is featured in the Dynamic Fit textile straps.
Purple, often associated with pride and passion, celebrates the soul of New Orleans festivities. An atomic violet upper pairs with metallic gold accents and a speckled midsole that reflects the colorful energy and grittiness of the streets in the Creole capital.
Inspired by the elegant structures that litter the French Quarter, the crackle texture upper of the Jordan XX8 SE honors the distinct cityscape of the Crescent City. The electric elements are inspired by the colorful streets and lifestyle found throughout the area.
@sneakernews the blue ones are fresh.
@sneakernews The XX8s remind me of the Kobe Grinch's
@sneakernews the XX8s remind of the kobe grinch's
@sneakernews not intersting at all. Nike made a better job( Gator King Lebron XI are nasty, KD VI and Kobe 9 are also freakin' beautiful)
@sneakernews quite purpilly
@sneakernews needs more flare! Too basic
That xx8 se reminds me of the kd v all star joints, because of the colors used... Obviously not the red though
Jordan brand said, "let's go the cheap route and use the same Laces and same color/material sole!" The people won't notice
awful use of a new orleans theme right here!!! sad thing is someone will cop one or all of these as consolation prize, if they miss all other all star kicks or jordan 6s
@Arwg1 prefer the other ones
@Whereiskajarii Not at all.
@curtdiggler1More likely they will cop them because they like them, and don’t share your limited taste in Jordans.
