Appearing for the first time on the Nike Air Windrunner silhouette back in 1987, the brand’s world famous elephant print has since become synonymous with Air Jordan models. Most commonly seen in the standard grey hue, the iconic pattern was originally inspired by African art and is now a distinctive part of the Jordan brand’s DNA. In light of the recent brown-hued updates, we’ve curated a handful of the most popular elephant-print sneakers.

Showcasing a subtle version of the iconic print, the versatile Air Jordan 1 Mid Elephant Toe is crafted using premium materials. Featuring a contrasting Jumpman logo on its tongue, the upper consists of snakeskin-textured panels, nubuck overlays and touches of branding. Grounded with a classic AJ1 sole unit, this modern elephant print offering is next to demand a space in your collection.
