Of all the Drake Air Jordan exclusives floating around, no pair has been shrouded in mystery more than the Air Jordan 3 he wore in Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" music video.

The sneaker is on display now at the RETROspective exhibit in Los Angeles, a gallery of exclusive and rare sneakers put on by longtime collector/reseller CroatianStyle and his store Project Blitz. Its appearance there means the public can now get a good look at the shoe, which otherwise hasn't really been spotted outside of the aforementioned music video.

The sneaker was designed by Mark Smith, who applied a lenticular elephant print to its upper and used patent leather for the pieces that wrap around the base.

The RETROspective exhibit is open now at Known Gallery at (441 N. Fairfax Ave) in Los Angeles.
