5 Hard To Find Sneakers

5 Of The Most Popular Sneakers

One of the hard to find sneakers is the Air Jordan V Retro Quai 54, which was released in 2011. Maybe at the time you knew someone over seas or best friends with Fabolous (who was seen wearing a pair) at that time. If not you didn’t have a chance to score a pair of these super-limited Jordan 5’s. This sneaker got its name from the Quai 54 Basketball Tournament which was held in France.

Back in (June/2011) it was reported that  the Quai 54 edition of the Air Jordan V would be hitting the House of Hoops this weekend and everyone was quite disappointed from the announcement that the release would not be happening.  After sharing the original information received by a reputable source, different stories began to come out regardig the drop and now have definitively confirmed with the Jordan Brand that there was no stateside release planned.

They had apologized for any confusion and hoped no one started to line up to get a pair.  If now you really want to grab a pair, you may find some on Ebay to pick up a pair.  Since then they have come down in price.  Some of them are used and I think you can still buy a new pair, that has never been worn.

Now with the up coming releases for the Fall of 2018, there are complete guides from Nike, adidas, Reebok, Asics, New Balance and several others brands.  Here you will find confirmed release dates, price, size information and much more. One of the recommended online stores is Footlocker or Finishline.
