After winning last year’s Vote Back campaign during Air Max Day 2016, the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Elephant” will be making a triumphant return for AMD 2017. Originally released in 2007, the sneaker takes the classic runner and fuses it with the signature elephant print of the Air Jordan 3, adding jade blue contrasts and black suede for an upscale, sporty interpretation of the 1987 trainer.
But now, Jordan Brand is getting in on the AMD 2017 action, releasing a special Air Max Day pack featuring a Jordan 3 inspired by the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Safari.” Replacing the 3’s elephant print with a spotted safari motif, the translucent sole and hits of orange harken back to the 2002 sneaker, which was just retroed last year.
The pack will come in a box that pays homage to the elephant and safari prints on both kicks, and is expected to drop on March 18. That day will also see the release of the Nike x atmos Air Max 1 retro.
The Nike x Jordan atmos Pack will set you back about $400 and, of course, will be available in extremely limited quantities. Good luck out there!
