Here’s another look at the upcoming Air Jordan V Premio drop, one that sheds new light on some of this Bin 23 Collection release’s details. First up, it’s clear from these new images that the tongue is done just like your favorite AJ5s, in a reflective 3M material that shines bright silver under the right light. On the flip side of that tongue is also a bit of new info, in the form of a sewn-on tag that numbers the AJ5 Premio at a mere 1734 pairs. Try not to drive yourself mad searching for the formula Jordan Brand used to arrive at that number and instead turn your attention to getting a pair from this super limited run. Stick with Sneaker News and we’ll keep you posted on the retail date, and check out RMK-Store to reserve your pair or grab yours early on eBay.
Color: Black/Black-Metallic Silver

Next up in the luxurious Jordan Brand Bin 23 Collection is the Air Jordan V, a sneaker that debuted in 1990 and was inspired by a World War II mustang fighter plane. Despite taking inspiration from a rugged machine, the Air Jordan V possesses an unmatched level of luxury and prestige, and the upcoming Premio version only accentuates its beauty. Featuring a full leather upper, the Air Jordan V Premio sheds the lightweight translucent netting and applies a perforated leather panel. Leather has never been the primary material for a black pair of Air Jordan V with the exception of an original kids release – and based on the origin of the Bin 23, a leather-uppered black Jordan V could have been in the works when it first released. These new images shed light on the high-end attitude of the Bin 23 collection, given by the smooth leather and gorgeous inner lining, but reminds us of the AJV’s true origin with the speckled ‘sharks teeth’ seen on the midsole. Osneaker has a few available right now for purchase so take another look at the Air Jordan V Premio below and let us know what you think.
