We’ve seen Nike sole-swap just about everything in their arsenal and release it with a coveted colourway. The VaporMax 97 has shot out a ‘Silver Bullet’ and an Air Max 90/1 surfaced in a blend of the OG ‘Sport Red’, but this is a new one.
From the same people who dreamed the Louis Vuitton x Off-White x Air Jordan 1 into existence (however necessarily), comes this Air Max 271 wearing atmos’s famed ‘Elephant’ makeup. Stopping short of using actual elephant, the customisers chop up Amazonian fish and shark skin, ostrich leg and python, meshing models and animals together into an entirely new beast.
Those after this, or something similar, should get chatting with New York’s Ceeze Creative Studios.
