This week, Jordan Brand unveils the Crescent City Gold Collection, a limited-edition pinnacle apparel assortment blending performance and style. The 10-piece collection was designed with the game’s style icons in mind.
Inspired by the spirit of New Orleans and love for the game of basketball, the Gold Collection utilizes a simple black-and-white color palette offset by antique gold. Intricate graphics honor the city’s prominent wrought ironwork found on French Quarter balconies. The fashion-forward collection features premium materials such as waxed cotton and leather, created with cut-and-sew construction.
A highlight of the pinnacle assortment is the AIR JORDAN XX8 featuring an all-white perforated upper and bamboo heel counter, underpinned by the brand’s performance Flight Plate technology. As Tinker Hatfield’s last AIR JORDAN XX8 design, this colorway boasts an ultra-modern stealth design without compromising the elite performance elements in the most technologically advanced Air Jordan to date.
Look for Jordan Brand signature athletes Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to see how each player styles his favorite pieces in New Orleans this weekend. The Crescent City Gold Collection is available in limited numbers online at Jordan.com and Footaction.com. Select retail outlets, including Flight 23 at Footaction in New York, Chicago DTC, and Jordan Crescent City Iron Works Pop Up in New Orleans, will also feature the collection.
