Nike Elephant Shoe

Nike Elephant Shoe, The biggest Nike shoe ever was not made for a tall basketball player, but for an elephant with a limp.

A PR representative for the sneaker company shared a photo of this gargantuan piece of footwear on Twitter, explaining that the shoe was engineered to help one elephant find balance, since one of its legs was shorter than the others.

The leather sneaker is designed to look like elephant skin, and it features stylish white buckles on the heel, grey shoelaces, and remnants of baby pink trademark Nike swooshes on the sides.

The PR representative captioned the photo: 'Biggest shoe Nike ever made was for an elephant that had one leg shorter than the others. Nike fitted him with lifts.'

No details about the age or size of the shoe or elephant were given, but from its tattered appearance it would appear the sneaker was well worn.

Joel Colley, an Oregon-based art director, took to Instagram to share a photo of the shoe back in October.

According to Mr Colley, the immense sneaker belonged to a female elephant named Bandula, who was also developing arthritis.

And some have speculated that Bandula may have had an aesthetic influence on the the sportswear brand.

A writer from Racked.com surmised: 'Perhaps he or she was the inspirations for the company's elephant print? Possible.'
