The BIN 23 Collection has been commended by Air Jordan connoisseurs as the most elite sneakers to ever release under Jordan Brand. Not cause of their limited availability which only grants a pair to just over 1,000 people worldwide. More so cause of their superior craftsmanship which seems to be head and shoulders above the regular Jordan models. Also cause of the little doodads that are included outside of the actual sneaker, like the wooden shoe trees which add to that premium Air Jordan vibe.
So far MJ’s brand has released an Air Jordan 9 and Air Jordan 2 under the BIN 23 label, both of which were very hot sellers and had people camping outside distributors for up to 48hrs in advance. Rumored to be on deck for the BIN 23 Collection is the Air Jordan 13 (XIII) Retro Premio.
Jordan enthusiasts will instantly recognize the maroon, tan and white color blocking from an unreleased Air Jordan 13 sample that surfaced online back in 2005. For whatever reason the sneakers were squashed at the time, but now it appears they’re actually going to make it into production as part of Jordan Brand’s most elusive collection. What makes this sneaker probably one of the most unique Air Jordan 13’s is the fact that majority of the upper is constructed from suede, including the midfoot area which is regularly seen fabricated from a mesh material with a 3M hit. The unusual color blocking would probably have this Air Jordan 13 sitting on the shelves have it been a regular release, being part of the BIN 23 Collection though, we highly doubt that’s gonna happen.
No official release details are available at this time so stay tuned for further information.
