If you’re an avid follower of Sneaker News (and if you are, many thanks), the sneaker boutique known as Extra Butter should be a familiar name in your internal database of top-flight sneaker boutiques in the States. A friendly and knowledge staff with quite the eye for photography is what makes up the Extra Butter crew, and for the upcoming Black Friday release of the Air Jordan III ‘Black Cement’, Extra Butter will release two versions of a premium snapback hat, limited to just 23 units per design (46 total). What makes this premium offering quite the eye-catching piece is that the bill of the hat is made of 100% genuine elephant hide – a clear and unique call-out to the elephant print that Tinker Hatfield devised back when the Air Jordan III design was conceptualized over two decades ago. Of course, these are only for the true snapback connoisseurs (they’re $200 a piece), so check out the extra shots below and let us know what you think.

Elephant hide looks like a shriveled up scrotum. Why would you want to wear what looks like sweaty balls on your head? Why would you want to wear a corpse on your head? This makes no sense and looks terrible.

"a corpse on your head"... so you don't wear corpses on your feet when you wear leather sneakers? i'm beginning to think some of you dumb fucks are unaware that leathers come from cows! not to mention safari looks like chicken pox, and ostrich skin looks like the measles... but you probably won't complain when you get your yeezy's that have ostrich

Look at all these fools complainin about a little bit of elephant skin. I can almost guarantee you that everyone of these TARDS has a closet FULL of leather sneakers....which by the way comes from DEAD animals.

sure! if that makes you feel better..... Endangered or not its still a dead animal. If your gonna hate on animals being used for something, dont use ANYTHING that comes from an animal at all. Hypocrite.

you really think the workers at extrabutter went to foreign countries and hunted for elephants? get real. the only way theyd b allowed to use it is from a verified company that doesnt kill the animal. only uses animals that died by themselves or natural causes...

Oh I get it... So if someone were to make a Jordan inspired car, or a diamond encrusted gold Jordan 3 pendant, neither is allowed to sell for more than $175? This is rare and obviously not easy to have done. You pay for what it's worth not by the cost of a shitty produced basketball shoe. And oojo is right- Don C sells snakeskin for double the price and everyone thinks those are "swagtastic". I bet if yeezy or wale or even nigo made something out of elephant, it would be the insta-cop of the century. And they'd prob kill way more to produce a few hundred in order to profit. At least butter kept it humane at 46... maybe 2 elephants. How many cows y'all kill when copping every Jordan made of shitty ass leather anyway?

...exactly- I don't think any cows were killed for "shitty ass leather "jordans And there's a big difference between snakes and elephants

well jordan quality sucks now days.. you spend 160 $ for blk cements that only cost nike only 70$ to make...

O RLY?
O RLY?

You do realize that many of the costs of a retail item are distribution and marketing. Plus the retailer has a HUGE markup built in, they probably invoice a pair of $160 Jordans at less than $100. I'd be surprised if it even cost $70 to make a pair of Jordan IIIs, I would have guessed more like $30.

I thought it was illegal to use elephant hide? Oh well- this is very evil if that's the case and u don't have swag for wearing it , your just a douche - hope u die if u get this hat

Oojo
