It was no surprise during Air Max Day 2016, that the coveted Atmos x Nike “Elephant” collaboration would win, beating out some classic like the Air Max 90 “Duck Camo” and the Air Max 90 “War Hawk”. This iconic colorway is inspired by an elephant taking a bath, with Tinker Hatfield’s signature cracked concrete print being the skin of the elephant and the hits of jade (swoosh, path and heel) references water.

This particular sneaker is an impressive article of Air Max history by itself, but the sneaker gains even more importance when you consider it in the wider picture of all atmos x Nike collaborations.

This revered collaboration is slated to release this weekend, March 18, 2017, 9 A.M. Central European Time, on of course Air Max Day. They will be available individually for $150 USD or as one-part of the atmos x Jordan/Nike Pack featuring the Air Jordan 3 “Safari” for $400 USD. Either way this shoe will not be easy to cop. DOPE OR NOPE? LET US KNOW!
