Nike Air Force Operate – Amare Stoudemire Elephant Print PE
Amare Stoudemire recently re-upped his endorsement contract with Nike, which we hope will lead to more PE colorways of Nike basketball shoes like these. Earlier this month, Sneaker News showed you the Nike Air Force Operate All-Star Game PE that Amare wore during the 2005 NBA All-Star Game; it featured elephant print on the upper with a funky red/blue motif to match the All-Star Game theme colorway of that year. These elephant print PEs might be a bit more likable because it has the classic cement grey/black two-toned elephant print, which is paired with a Black/Purple trim to match the Phoenix Suns uniforms. The mid-foot straps feature Amare’s ‘STAT’ nickname logo as well as his former jersey number of ’32 printed on the tongues. These were never released to the public, but have become available for purchase online, so take a look at the gallery below and hit up the auction from generalaltman on eBay.
