Closer Look: The Air Jordan 5 ‘Quai 54’ in a Friends and Family Colourway
Adding to the first look we saw a few weeks back, more shots of the uber-rare Friends and Family version of the Air Jordan 5 from 2021’s Quai 54 collection have surfaced. F&F colourways aren’t uncommon among the Swoosh’s reoccurring Quai 54 lineups, with various exclusive renditions revealed throughout the years, such as 2017’s Air Jordan 1, and 2019’s Air Jordan 8. However, this ultra-rare AJ5 has to rank up there with the best alternates we’ve seen to date.
A flip on the white colours of the mainline rendition, this Friends and Family offering of the Air Jordan 5 has a black suede base with the same detailing and designs inspired by traditional West African fabric patterns. Down below, we get a white midsole with the familiar shark teeth done in black, while a red translucent outsole completes the design.
As with most Friends and Family footwear, this version of the Air Jordan 5 ‘Quai 54’ won’t likely get a public release, with pairs reserved for VIPs among the Swoosh and Quai 54 crews. That said, you can always expect a few pairs to pop up on the secondary market.
