air safari august 2013 Nike Air Safari   August 2013 Releases

Is that a little bit of elephant print we see on the Nike Air Safari? Generally we’re not too terribly thrilled about that pattern finding its way onto every random Nike re-issue, but it actually makes a decent amount of sense here thanks to the “safari” theme and the pretty close proximity of the OG releases of this shoe and that shoe (The Air Jordan III, that is). Take a look at this quick preview featuring two new Nike Air Safari pairs on their way for August 2013 and then grab them on pre-order from the team at hanon if you like what you see.

It’s a bit strange that during this peak of tremendous pattern activity on sneakers, one of Nike’s iconic prints and its namesake silhouette has been utterly silent in 2013.  Luckily, more Nike Air Safari VNTG colorways are coming soon, including this new revelation in black, Night Stage and Pure Platinum.  It’s got an uncredited yellow shade peeking out from the edges of the outsole, but is otherwise in line with the timeless elegance of classic black/white.  This suggests the one pair we’ve seen previewed in ’13 will be following shortly, so stick with Sneaker News for updates and grab this new Air Safari today from Nike Sportswear shops like Overkill.

After a brief respite following 2012′s various 25th anniversary celebratory measures, the Nike Air Safari returns with a new Vintage colorway. The first VNTG Air Safaris since July, this one comes in Classic Stone and Anthracite, and while the color names and box label suggest these are antique, there’s no sign of pre-yellowing, abrasions or other obvious signs pointing to that suffix. It is indeed a timeless color combo as you’ll see in more photos after the jump, but stick with Sneaker News to make sure you’re aware promptly when they release this May.

Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

sneakernews top 30 2012 1a Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.
