By February 11, 2023Jordan, Nike

Air Jordan 1 Elephant Print - White Cement - AIO BotOne of the most iconic prints that set apart the Jordan Brand colorways is the legendary ELEPHANT PRINT. It was Tinker Hatfield that brought in the use of this exotic print with his 1988 Air Jordan 3 game-changing design. The sneakers that Michael Jordan wore during the ‘88 Slam Dunk contest. AND, the sneakers that, reportedly, kept MJ with Nike. Now, the print is back with an OG release of the Air Jordan 1 Elephant Print, aka White Cement!

Naturally, this release comes in celebration of the Air Jordan 3 in 2023 to commemorate its 35th anniversary. We all know that Nike and the Jordan Brand are BIG on anniversaries! And so, the best way to truly celebrate is to drop a new Air Jordan 1! Although we’ve all been waiting for the Retro of the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement, we’ll take this drop instead.

For now…

So, what makes the Air Jordan 1 Elephant Print (or White Cement) so special? Well, for starters, this color scheme does take us back to one of the greatest moments in Air Jordan history: the creation of the Air Jordan 3. And also, it’s a big, bold, and exotic color scheme!

The Air Jordan 1 Elephant Print comes in a colorway of Tech Grey, Muslin, Black, and White. A color scheme that comes together in the classic Chicago color-blocking! The white leather base creates the perfect contrast to the offsetting elephant print overlays. And, for more contrast, they come with Black detailing on the Swooshes, ankle collars, shoelaces, Wings logo, and tongue tags. The glossy black Jordan Wings definitely give it that added quality of luxury… maybe not $1,500 worth of luxury. But, still!
