April 30 (UPI) -- One lucky elephant received the biggest shoe Nike ever created. The giant lace-up sneaker had a lift to even out the elephant's legs, one of which was shorter than the others.

It isn't clear when the shoe was designed or where the elephant is now, but judging from the wear on that sneaker it looks like the elephant might have needed a new shoe. Nike's lead public relations official, Heidi Burgett, says those scraps of pink are all that's left of Nike's swoosh logo.
