Jay-Z has always been a fan of exclusive things. 

This time though, he is one of only ten people to have a particular Air Jordan 1 and in typical Jay-Z fashion, he got ’em early.

The PMK (Perfectly Made Kicks) custom Air Jordan 1 is not an actual release from Jordan brand, but it does make use of an authentic shoe in a way we’ve never seen before. Nicknamed “Brooklyn Zoo,” the sneaker is paneled with different types of exotic animal skins. Elephant, Ostrich, Python, Boa, Crocodile, Lizard, Alligator, Suede, and Sting Ray have all been used to make the shoe unlike any other on the market, which may also explain why only 10 were made. 

LeBron James may have a hand in the reason Jay received his pair early, because the PMK “Brooklyn Zoo” Air Jordan 1 will be released exclusively at his Miami retail store, UNKNWN, on November 7th.

Oddly enough, Jay-Z captioned the photo on his Life+Time website with the quote “Condos in my Condo” and made no mention of the sneakers except in the Brooklyn Zoo title of the post. The “Condos in my Condo” line refers to the gold sculpture next to the sneaker that was done by George Condo and definitely cost a whole lot more than all 10 of those sneakers – but Jay-Z has always had a knack for bringing things together.
