How do you come up with newer design trends? Many designers look to things around us for inspiration. The folks at Air Jordan, too, have done the same. The legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield used this trend for the Air Jordan 3. Tinker used the texture of elephant skin as a design element and created a pair of Air Jordan 3s that came with special elephant texture overlays.

With time, these shoes became top-selling sneakers online and the elephant print textured design began to be used in many other items- mostly those that used leather as the upholstery. Adding to this, designers have also come up with crocodile texture, lizard texture, and much more.

This time, Air Jordan is repurposing the popularity of the elephant print on other silhouettes like the Air Jordan 1. 

What to expect from the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘White Cement/Elephant Print’ colorway?

If you see Air Jordan 3 designs, you’ll notice the elephant print is only a small overlay of the shoe’s upper. This time, Air Jordan designers are using the elephant print judiciously across the upper. So much, so that this Air Jordan 1 colorway has a white-based upper with elephant print overlays and a patch of black at the ankle. The flat laces and the Swoosh are in black too. The midsole is white while the sole is grey.

What makes this AJ1 colorway a great buy?

This is perhaps the first time Air Jordan has come up with an elephant print colorway for the Air Jordan 1. Air Jordan released this colorway after a lot of negative feedback from sneakerheads online who wanted something unique when they released the Air Jordan 1 ‘White Cement’ colorway back in September last year.

Many sneakerheads, who always strive to Buy Trending Sneakers Online wanted something in the Air Jordan 1 that helped them stand out from other shoes. The designers at Air Jordan took note of this and came up with a design that repurposes the elephant print while also keeping the core Air Jordan 1 design intact.

Where can I buy these kicks?

Though you could Buy Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'White Cement / Elephant Print' online when these shoes drop on 25th February, getting hold of a pair may not be that simple. There is intense competition for these shoes, so much so that coping a pair is considered a win.

Air Jordan releases only a few pairs of shoes for each drop. This makes the shoes a hot property in the grey market, where opportunists use dubious means to buy from the official drop and sell them for more than twice their cost on the sneaker grey market.

This doesn’t mean you can’t buy limited-edition shoes like these. There are other websites like the best online sneaker store that offer these AJ1 shoes much later than the drop. You can register for the sale and make your purchase as required. If you don’t have the money at hand, you could buy now and pay later using various financiers Sole Seriouss has tied up with.
