By introducing elephant print to the world, Tinker Hatfield and his Air Jordan 3 forever altered the use of animal-inspired prints on sneakers. This cold-blooded take on the silhouette extends that concept to craft a reptile-heavy aesthetic taking after MJ's fierce competitive instincts. Scaly textures cover the entirety of the shoe's upper, recalling snakeskin and gator, along with remixed elephant print on the heel in Gorge Green. Splashes of Varsity Red and Maize brighten the sole, tongue, eyestays and heel.
Since his game-winning shot that brought championship glory to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took to the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will, while capturing the imaginations of fans worldwide.
