Let’s be a real: the most popular part of the Jordan Brand Quai 54 Basketball Tournament was the shoes. Not taking anything away from the international streetball teams that duked it out in Paris, but anytime an Air Jordan Retro is involved, it usually gets the most attention. What made the Air Jordan V ‘Quai 54’ even more of an interesting story was that a special Black nubuck version was made in very limited numbers, given out to friends and family of Jordan Brand. A pair of these rarities has finally hit online auction, but the hefty asking price of $10,000 has you wondering: Is one pair of shoes worth ten grand? That’s a Nike Mag 2011, with money left over to buy a pre-owned Honda Civic! Whether you think the Black Quai 54s are worth the money or not, these are a slick-lookin’ pair of shoes, so check out the gallery of images below and pay a visit to the auction from French seller sneakersaddicted on eBay.
