Back in April, we gave you a sneak peek at the Quai 54-inspired Jordan Element from the Ruff N Tuff collection and with the tournament approaching, these kicks are about to hit stores. The Quai 54 basketball tournament is held in Paris every summer, pitting some of the world’s best streetball squads against each other for the glory of international bragging rights. In recognition of the event, Jordan Brand will be releasing limited edition Quai 54 versions of the Jordan Element and the Air Jordan 1.
The Element features a combination of materials on the upper, using sections of Black patent leather, Elephant print nubuck and durable mesh. The kicks also sport White contrast stitching, Laser Blue accents and a speckled midsole stripe as well as a translucent herringbone outsole and a special Quai 54 tongue label. Originally believed to be a European exclusive, the Jordan Element will be hitting House of Hoops on Saturday, June 20th. For now, you can check out some nice detailed images after the jump.
