Editor’s Notes: Japanese boutique atmos has confirmed another partnership with Nike on the “Animal Pack 2.0,” in honor of Air Max Day 2018. The pack is a reprisal of the original atmos x Nike “Animal” pack from 2006.
Slated to be released alongside the Air Max 95, the Air Max 1 shoe now features a pony-hair infused upper, combining cheetah, zebra and tiger prints throughout. Making it a knockout for Spring, the kicks also feature green Nike branding on the heel and a large red Swoosh to match.

The story behind Nike’s iconic animal pack
atmos designer Hirofumi Kojima gathered additional “Animal Pack” inspiration at a safari park, where he gravitated toward “the most impressive animals,” he says.
He wanted the design to communicate the power of the tiger and the giraffe and the speed of the zebra, leopard, and horse.
He took it a step further with two Swoosh colors: the red symbolizes the carnivorous leopard and tiger, while the green symbolizes the herbivorous giraffe, zebra, and horse.
