There’s an elephant in the room thanks to Nike but this particular pachyderm will only make things awkward for cats with lesser footwear. The sneaker giant has laced the Air Jordan 1 model with a healthy dose of that infamous elephant print and it’s looking to stomp out the competition.

Nike’s first signature silhouette is decked out in a monochromatic blood red leather upper with elephant print playing a very heavy role. The toe box, ankle, heel and faceplate are all covered in the iconic fabric with black laying in the cracks for emphasis. A white outsole completes the shoe making the red upper pop like crazy.

There's no word on when Nike will release these red-hot beauts but they won't be hard to miss once they arrive on store shelves next year.
