The ATMOS designed Nike Air Max 1 "Elephant" is set to return in 2017 as the winner of Nike's recent Air Max Day "Vote Back" campaign but if Koji, the Head Designer at ATMOS, has his way, the 2017 release will be different from the original.

In a recent interview with HYPEBEAST, Koji explains that if given the permission, "I could change some design or materials for the new Air Max 1 “Elephant” 2017 ver." 

So while several sneakerheads have resorted to literally shaving the extra fur off of the recently released and Nike-tweaked Air Max 1 "Safari," ATMOS' designer would like to flip the materials himself for the next go 'round.

Keep the clippers handy just in case.
