In keeping with past traditions in collaborating with Laika Studios, Nike plans for another collaborative release, this time for the upcoming movie Missing Link.

The animated movie stars the vocal talents of Zach Galifianakis, Hugh Jackman, and Zoe Saldana. In the promotional video from Nike, a team of sneaker designers including Tinker Hatfield set out to design a custom shoe for the 8-foot-tall, 650-pound creature. Enlisting the help of sizeable sporting stars including MLB’s Mike Trout, NFL’s Ndamukong Suh, WNBA’s Sue Bird, and Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles, the team creates a green, yellow and brown Air Max silhouette.

While there’s no clear look at the entire gigantic sneaker just yet, we do catch a glimpse of the tweed-clad sneaker. Just like the previous Air Jordan 15 Kubo (now reselling upwards of $500 USD) this Nike x Laika Studios “Air Susan” is sure to appeal to animation fans and sneakerheads alike.

Watch the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the “Air Susan,” and expect Nike to drop official details on March 5.
