The influence of Jordan Brand has seeped beyond the limits of basketball sneakers, as seen in the high-end dress shoe effort by the Air Jordan II (2) Retro Premio. This latest Air Jordan “crossover” of sorts comes packaged as if it were a pair of Italian Leather wingtips, complete with wooden shoe-tree, shoe bag, and cardnote, closed shut by a wax stamp. The upper consists of a rich brown leather, fashioned with faux-snakeskin, which caps off the basketball court-to-ball room transformation to a tee. While wearing a pair of sneakers with a suit might be a sure-fire fashion faux pas, this Air Jordan II ‘dress shoe’ can definitely slip by the fashion police radar. You can order a pair now over at SNS.
