Celebrating a quarter-century of history is the Nike Air Safari, one of Tinker Hatfield’s original 5 of 1987 that has continued to spray out influential measures of excellence and style throughout its existence. How will Nike Sportswear pay homage to this classic? Well, the quirky sneaker, which Tinker called one of the earliest ‘Lifestyle’ running sneakers, will receive a mass distribution in various forms – a redone Lunar Safari, the Safari exploration for the Air Force 1 iD, and of course, in its original ’87 form. Here we have a first look at some Fall 2012 drops that feature suede and nylon uppers paired with the Safari-print material, previewed a few months back here on Sneaker News. While we don’t have a full viewing of this new style, we do get a solid idea of what to expect once they hit stores later this year. Your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below. via providermag

The earlier pics led me to believe these would be a maybe, but these pics make it certain they're a definitely not.
Nike's bs "vintage" gimmick...pre-aged shoes. I personally would ever gonna buy a pre-beat pair of shoes. Safari's have always been one of my favorite Nike's, but these will easily be passed on.
