Model: Air Safari Vintage
Colourway: Sail / Orange / Black
Nike have been re-releasing a lot of their original ranges, and the Air Safari is the latest to be given the “Vintage” label.
Originally released in 1987, the Air Safari was well ahead of its time. The safari fabric print and air sole was a radical step in shoe design, resulting in the original being one of Nike’s less successful releases. None the less, this re-release comes in a wide range of colourways, with this orange example being my personal favourite, and they look awesome.
Suede, nylon and fabric all constitute the upper, coming together to give a really clean, quality finish. The range comes in additional materials such as mesh and leather, Nike ID allowing them to be mixed and matched with fully customizable colourways for the customers desired effect.
The whole safari/print look seems to be coming back into fashion at the moment, and at first, I wasn’t keen. These beauties have really changed my tone though, adding a unique, subtle difference that looks sweet.
