Nike iD released the famed elephant print as a customizable option on the Nike Air Force 1 on February 1st. The end result was 750 online pairs gone in under a 24-hour period! Of course, Sneaker News got in on the Air Force 1 iD Elephant Print excitement, so here’s a look at two of our designs. The first was a no-brainer; a Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low inspiration was the first to enter our minds, and with the identical color-blocking allowed by the Nike iD system, the final result was one of the best SB Dunks ever transferred perfectly onto an Air Force 1 (and you won’t have to pay an arm and leg and a kidney for one of Clark Kent’s SB Dunk Force 1s).
The second was a play on ‘elephant’, as we went with a full tonal elephant print upper with a solid grey outsole, tongue, laces, and interior lining for that gentle giant-meets-classic sneaker appeal. Elephant print has been one of the more common materials used on the top-shelf sneaker customization experience known as the Air Force 1 Bespoke, but these two iDs prove that you can have a Bespoke-like effect for just a quarter of the cost. Check out the detailed images of our Nike Air Force 1 iD Elephant Print creations and show off some of your Air Force 1 iDs by submitted to Sneaker News Blogs: WDYWT!
