Shoe Pick #6 – Nike

Brand: Nike
Air Safari Vintage
Sail / Orange / Black
Price: £75

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.

About Tom McCluskey

My name is Tom, and this is my blog! I'm 19 years of age, and just beginning my 2nd year of a BSc/BA Product Design degree at Bournemouth University, UK. Otherwise, I live at home in Romford, London (not Essex!) during the summer period. Design is something I'm taking ever more seriously in life. Starting my degree, hoping to explore a field I had dabbled in with GCSE Graphics at school, design has gradually become something of an obsession. Shoe/Trainer/Sneaker design is something that particularly interests and inspires me, I'm quite the "sneakerhead", and I plan on using this blog to showcase my journey through university, and beyond. When it comes to extracurricular activities, I'm a big fan of sports, football and badminton in particular. West Ham United are my team, and you'd struggle to find a more passionate fan. Just ask my girlfriend, I was absolutely delirious when we won the play off's final against Blackpool earlier this year, COYI! Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I've got to showcase here in my blog, thanks for dropping by. Tom.
