Since January, Air Jordan and Air Max fans alike have been anticipating a crossover collaboration between the mammoth Nike franchises in the form of a dual-branded “Atmos” pack.
As the rumored March 26 release date draws near, new images are surfacing of the pack, which includes a first look at the “Atmos” Air Jordan 3.
This limited-edition take on the classic 1989 Tinker Hatfield design replaces its traditional elephant print overlays for another one of Nike’s iconic prints: safari.
The sneakers utilize a black suede construction with off-white, dark green and orange accents and are capped off with an icy translucent outsole. Meanwhile, the model’s original Nike Air branding appears at the heel in place of a Jumpman logo.
Joining the Air Jordan 3 is an elephant print-covered Air Max 1, which was originally released in 2006 as a collaboration with retailer Atmos. In 2016, Nike allowed fans to vote on the design they’d most like to see rereleased, and the “Atmos” Air Max 1 was chosen.
There are no confirmed launch details for this Air Jordan 3 and Nike Air Max 1 package, but a March 26 release — which is Nike’s annual Air Max Day — and a retail price of $400 is expected.
