The Jordan Brand BIN23 Collection kicked off with the release of the Air Jordan II Premio, and the dress-shoe motif proved to be popular as each of the 1,097 reportedly sold out immediately wherever these pairs dropped. The combination of croc-skin and leather might’ve appealed to a Jordan collector of an older age, and this sample of the Air Jordan II, possibly a sample version of the Premio Jordan II, proves that Jordan Brand did in fact have a high-end, Italian leather dress shoe in mind. Check out this sample of the Air Jordan II constructed in a premium leather upper, white leather lining, pebbled texture leather, and a caramel-colored heelguard.
A look inside the insole reveals the branded stamp of Vero Cuoio, an Italian company specializing in sole leather. If you thought prices on Air Jordans were high, authentic Italian leather dress shoes float around the thousand-dollar range at the very least, and this pair of high-quality leather and meticulously crafted Air Jordan II Retros would have been a worthy addition to the Jordan Brand BIN23 Collection. Which pair do you think is better, these samples, or the released version? This pair is quite possibly a one-of-one so try your luck by bidding on this pair from dballaholic on eBay.
