Noted sneaker artist, The Shoe Surgeon, returns to unveil a new custom creation, this time blending two of the most revered sneaker silhouettes in recent memory to create one distinct hybrid. A quick look is all that is needed for true sneakerheads to pick up noticeable cues from both the Nike Air Max 1 “atmos Elephant” and the Air Jordan 1 High in what is being referred to as the Air Jordan 1 “atmos.”
Conceptually similar to what we have seen in past creations, the bespoke designer blankets the signature model in a host of luxe textiles, namely, soft leathers and python skin. With the aforementioned AM1 used as a creative blueprint, Jade Swooshes hit the side areas, with the easily-recognizable elephant print found on the toe, heel and rear collar area. The statement sneaker will release in limited numbers via The Shoe Surgeon’s online shop as of October 13.
