When you think of legendary Air Max collaborators, atmos is a name that’s bound to come up over and over again. The Japanese boutique is responsible for some of the most special Air Max releases of all time, with everything from the “Elephant” Air Max 1s to the “Duck Camo” Air Max 90s under their belt. However, their most well-known — and arguably best — work is the “Animal Pack,” consisting of both the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 95. The special shoes feature a plethora of exotic prints, calling upon everything from zebra to cheetah, and come dressed with red and green details, nodding to the yin and yang between herbivores and carnivores. atmos creative director Hirofumi Kojima recently took to his Instagram to offer an interesting timeline of the iconic designs — posting a picture of the first release from 2007, the second release from 2018, and the third friends and family only release from 2018 as well, a welcome trip down memory lane for Air Max lovers worldwide. Of course, none of the three are dropping, but you can enjoy a look at the animal kingdom-centric collection above — and if you’re on the hunt for a pair you can grab one from Stadium Goods now as well.
