Last month, Sneaker News showed you a Nike Air Revolution dubbed ‘Safari’ for its use of a macro version of the ostrich leather-inspired print. This stretch of Safari along the mudguard also connected them to the classic Air Assault, but you might argue that this new revelation is a truer match. Appearing with a more traditional Safari spotting on the heels of the macro version hitting retailers overseas, this University Gold-accented makeup is fairly close to one of the 2007 Assault retros. So did Nike make a change somewhere and falter when distributing the shoes to retailers, or are there indeed two different versions of the Air Revolution inspired by the Air Assault ? The colorways are identical as is the official product code, (disparity in the University Gold is just lightning), although the Gold portion of the midsole is slightly different. Click through for a closer view so you can decide which release looks better.
