The Air Jordan XXXI has surfaced in its most premium execution yet.

Shared by Jordan Brand employee Frank Cooker on Instagram, this Air Jordan XXXI features a soft gray upper in what appears to be suede. The shoe’s standout feature, however, is its snakeskin overlays at the Swoosh, tongue and heel.

This luxe update to the otherwise sporty performance basketball sneaker shows the Air Jordan XXXI in a new light, opening up possibilities for potential lifestyle releases in the future.

Unfortunately, Cooker’s Instagram post did not disclose any additional details on this premium pair, but there’s still plenty of time left in the Air Jordan XXXI’s life cycle, so it’s too early to rule out an official release.

In other Air Jordan XXXI news, the flagship model will be receiving a Space Jam-inspired makeover ahead of this holiday season’s Air Jordan 11 release. The “Space Jam” Air Jordan XXXI (shown below) hits nike.com and select Jordan Brand retailers on Dec. 3 for $185.
