Air Jordan Premio “Bin 23″ Collection
The Air Jordan Premio “Bin 23″ Collection is the object of desire for many sneaker enthusiasts, especially Jordan fans. The collection was intended to put a sophisticated twist on Air Jordan models, as “Bin” refers to a term in wine culture that signifies premium contents being used. Therefore, the name is appropriate for the Air Jordan collection, in which the limited sneakers are composed of premium materials. There is also a red splatter on each “Bin 23″ Jordan as symbol of authenticity similar to that the wax seal used as an authenticity marker on some wine bottles. The Air Jordan 2 Premio “Bin 23″ was the first to drop in the collection in 2010. Which has been your favorite?
