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.
