Tinker Hatfield and Air Jordan 3 introduced elephant prints to the world and forever changed how they melted animal prints in sneakers. The relentless silhouette expands the concept, expressing Michael Jordan’s fierce competitive instincts and expressing the aesthetics of raptiles. The texture of the scales covered the uppers of the shoes, reminiscent of python and crocodile leather, and remixed the prints of elephant green in the heel green color. Varsity red and maze detail accentuate the sole, tongue, ice-tay and heel.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro “Animal Instinct 2.0” is now listed on Nike SNKRS in South Korea for a 23rd of May release.
