The Ultra-Premium and Highly Detailed V3Lab5 'Elephant'

The fine folks over at Jordan Brand are set to release yet another off-the-chain pair of kicks to basketball heads and street wear fanatics: the Jordan V 3Lab5 'Elephant.' Borrowing from the iconic Jordan III, this pair of V's features an all-over elephant print that will break necks on and off the basketball court.

The sneaker is yet another addition to Jordan's 'Lab' series, which essentially takes the Jordan kicks everyone knows and loves, and spices them up a bit -- well, a lot. Besides elephant print, the sneaker features an icy-blue outsole and aqua hints to the Jumpman, lacelock and sharktooth midsole.

Even with an MSRP of $225, this release will not deter any hardcore collectors from doing whatever it takes to obtain a pair. The kicks drop September 29th in ridiculously limited quantities, and will surely be one of the most memorable releases of 2013. Stats for Elephant-Inspired Kicks Trending: Older & Warm
