Community Poll: Air Jordan 3LAB5 or Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Elephant Print”?

The Air Jordan 3 silhouette was the first shoe to feature elephant print trim that debuted in 1988. Since then, there have been a lot of inspired sneaker releases that featured elephant print detailing. Other than the Air Jordan 3, elephant print was a huge highlight for the Air Jordan 3LAB5 and Nike Air Foamposite Pro releases.
