NIKE AIR SAFARI The Nike Air Safari is a Tinker Hatfield designed Nike model that released originally in 1987. The sneaker was one of the first Nike models to extend beyond the world of sport, with Hatfield’s original intent being to create a sort of luxury sneaker. The model features the ‘safari’ print on the front and back ends, a motif that has been used in countless designs since.

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.

Nike Sportswear Grey/Navy Collection

New Balance is the brand most strongly associated with grey and navy blue suede and mesh retro running designs, but if you consider the vast Nike Sportswear catalog, it makes sense that many of these styles would also flourish under such traditionally elegant conditions.  NSW brings forth a new collection featuring eight different styles split into two sets of four silos, as the Nike Air Safari continues its 25th anniversary alongside Air Max 90s, Air Epics and Free Powerlines+es in grey and navy as part of the appropriately frilllessly-named capsule.  NSW nails the NB steez with a solid variety of kicks and complimenting apparel, and the grey joints will drop this Friday, September 28th, followed by the blues one week later on October 5th.

It’s been just about three months since our initial preview and now the above pictured Nike Air Safari colorway is approaching its retail release. Cast largely in grey (the mid panel’s not black, after all), including the signature ostrich-inspired toe and heel prints, this new Safari offers both quite a bit of wearability and an aggressive edge. These join the black/purple joints we showed you last week with pre-orders available from Titolo, who note that they’ll be in stores in October, so be sure to check with Sneaker News for updates on US availability.

The OGs have come and gone, the VNTG pairs have arrived at retail and the luxurious ‘Great Britain’ Pack dropped a couple weeks back, so what’s in store for the rest of the Air Safari’s 25th anniversary year? Pictured above is one answer, a new Nike Air Safari in black leather and mesh whose Court Purple tongue and liner and vibrant orange branding have these a green lace away from a Halloween party thrown by Clemson students, somewhere outside of South Carolina. That ‘Tigers Away’ look has an interesting interplay with the Safari’s signature ostrich-inspired print, and you can see these in greater detail below before pre-ordering for an October shipment from Titolo.
