*EDIT: April 06, 2022. *: More pictures of the AJ3 Desert Elephant have surfaced! Unfortunately, these aren't the official pictures from Nike yet, but they will definitely appear soon.
Most of you are probably familiar with the elephant print. Just a few days ago we told you about the Air Jordan 1 Low Elephant Print. But we have more. Because recently pictures of a 3 Series Jordan Desert Elephant have also appeared. All information about the shoe can be found here.
Do you actually know why the Elephant Print was created? Back in the days, Michael Jordan wanted a more luxurious design for his silhouettes. So Tinker Hatfield chose the elephant print as a more extravagant design for future designs. Michael Jordan and Nike seem to have liked it very much because we find it very often on all silhouettes. And meanwhile the print has become one of the most important motifs in shoe history. Let's take a closer look.
THIS IS WHAT THE DESERT ELEPHANT LOOKS LIKE
The new Jordan 3 comes with some newer materials for the design. The black upper comes with the usual leather, but all around the toe box and the heels is the elephant “print” in natural brown tones and indeed with a texture that closely resembles real elephant skin, rather than a print. The elements around the laces, ankle and tongue come in beige suede. Details like the Jumpman logo on the tongue and the rest of the lace eyelets are red. The jumpan on the heel is white. The laces are black. Overall a nice design.
THE JORDAN 3 DESERT ELEPHANT IS SCHEDULED TO COME ON JULY 1ST
