If you thought Shaq owned the biggest sneakers ever made, think again.

A PR representative for Nike recently unveiled the biggest sneaker that the company has ever manufactured. Earlier this month, Heidi Burgett tweeted: “Biggest shoe Nike ever made was for an elephant that had 1 leg shorter than the others. Nike fitted him w/ lifts,” along with this photo of the shoes.

The gigantic sneaker is rumored to belong to a female elephant named Bandula who is suffering from arthritis. From the photo you can see laces near the front and a buckle at the rear. The color also looks like it has been designed to match with the rest of the creature’s skin.

One question: how much did these things cost?
