Celebrating the passion of a city known around the world for its food, music and enduring spirit, the Jordan Crescent City 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. 

Jordan Melo M10

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.

Jordan Super.Fly 2

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.
