Fresh off a 53 point game against the Detroit Pistons, Luka Dončić and his Jumpman family have indirectly unveiled a Jordan Luka 1 covered in NIKE, Inc.’s iconic “Safari” and “Elephant” patterns.
Having debuted in 1987, the dotted print was designed by Tinker Hatfield in his pursuit to create a luxurious take on a performance sneaker. The Nike Air Safari has never enjoyed the same time in the spotlight as other models in Hatfield’s catalog, but it’s inspired some coveted styles over the years. Akin to an Air Max 1 by atmos from 2002, the upcoming Jordan Luka 1 features “Total Orange” hits throughout the upper and sole unit. Furthermore, the famed “Safari” print covers the majority of the left shoe’s upper; the right shoe’s lateral side favors the grey pattern that debuted on the Air Jordan 3 in 1988 (also designed by Hatfield). Altogether, the basketball sneakers’ components make for a wild makeover to Dončić’s first signature silhouette.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead. The shoes drop for the whole family via nike.com on Feb. 17.
