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.

Two all-leather ‘Great Britain’ edition Air Safaris arrived over the weekend in conjunction with the opening ceremonies in London, and today we have another reason to celebrate this Tinker Hatfield design’s 25th birthday. The Nike Air Safari Deconstruct strips this classic runner down to its essence, opting for a perforated outline instead of sewn-on Swooshes, along with subtle embossing on the unlined suede tongue. This black and Team Brown combo offers a simple style for the fall season with no trace of the silo’s namesake signature print, and you can see more below before grabbing a pair at Nike Sportswear stores like Oneness.

safari britain pack Nike Air Safari Great Britain Pack   Release Info

The Air Safari push continues with a set of premium-grade London-specific colorways featuring two awesome details not seen on Safari releases prior – a set of Safari laces, and a leather press-molded graphic on the insole. We first showed you this great Pack earlier this month, and although those not native to the UK will feel a bit envious of the Summer-long special treatment due to the Olympic festivities, the opportunity to cop a pair will still be there as Hanon reports a release date for this Friday, July 27th, when the 2012 Olympic Games officially commence. It is likely that other select retailers stocking the Air Safari ‘Great Britain’ Pack will release on Friday as well, so keep an ear to the ground if you’re out there.

Nike Air Safari LE – Black – Anthracite – Red

July 4th, 2012 by | 1 comment

nike air safari le black anthracite red 1 Nike Air Safari LE   Black   Anthracite   Red

The Nike Air Safari continues to overshadow big brother Air Max 1 in their shared 25th anniversary summer, this latest pair managing another connection to Nike Sportswear’s 2012 lineup via 1990. This black, Anthracite and red Air Safari LE is built with the kind of traditional construction you’d expect from a member of the class of ’87, but thanks to the palette and blocking pattern, these bear a certain resemblance to the most recent Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Premiums we’ve previewed. NSW has made sure you can go old school or new wave with your bred classic runners this summer; will you pick this new Air Safari for August now that it’s available for pre-order at End?

Nike Air Safari Deconstruct – Black – Team Brown – Sail

Nike Sportswear is pulling out all the stops for this year’s Air Safari retro, outfitting the ’87 all star with just about every possible deviation available in their catalog. Lunar, VNTG, and NIKE iD are all out there already, joined now by the Nike Air Safari Deconstruct, a stripped down approach that has found a home on other hallmarks like the Nike Air Force 1 and Nike Dunk High recently. The Swoosh is bumped down to a mere peforation and even the color scheme reflects the deconstructed notion, a stoic black and white that allows only for a bit of brown around the edges. Stay with us after the jump for all the angles and pick up the Nike Air Safari Deconstruct on pre-order now from Titolo.

Now that you have the OG colorway of the Nike Air Safari that dropped on the weekend firmly in your possession what’s next? There’s no shortage of options between the various VNTG style pairs and possible NIKE iD creations but we’re pretty partial to the ‘Great Britain’ pack shown above. The connection is a curious one as far as England goes but what’s important here is the premium leather look and the extra bit of safari-ness induced by the laces. Click through with us to take a look at both of these all new Nike Air Safari drops which have already arrived at Limited Edt in Singapore and stay here for news on if and when they make it stateside.

Nike Air Safari VNTG – Available

July 1st, 2012 by | 3 comments

nike air safari vntg available Nike Air Safari VNTG   Available

After you get past all the wine-related definitions, you’ll find that the word ‘vintage’ denotes high quality products from a bygone era. In the case of Nike Sportswear’s VNTG lineup, that translates to muted, almost rustic materials and colorways, pre-yellowing on the soles to suggest they’ve been sitting in a stockroom for two decades and now, a new feature distinct to this model currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. The Nike Air Safari VNTG gets all those aforementioned details plus an extra degree of abrasion on the suede side panels, which effectively increases the tonal depth of these designs and makes them arguably the most ‘VNTG’ drops we’ve ever seen. Check out the four pairs we’ve been previewing here on Sneaker News since last December, let us know which you like best and grab yours today from select NSW dealers like Asphalt Gold.

safari pack west 1 Nike Sportswear Safari Pack   Release Reminder

It’s time to get a little wild with your kicks because tomorrow, the sneaker game goes on Safari with the release of the two keynote Nike Retros ordained with the iconic graphic print. Tinker Hatfield was inspired by a couch he spotted in a high-end furniture shop, and from there, he created the original Air Safari as one of the first performance/lifestyle sneakers ever, and in 2012, Nike Sportswear did us a huge favor by re-releasing the OG as well as it’s fellow class of ’87 graduate Air Trainer 1 in the familiar print. Nikestore jumped the gun and dropped these a week ago, but the June 30th release date is still on schedule at a number of Nike Sportswear retailers, so don’t miss out on one of the best Nike Retro releases of the year by snagging them tomorrow from WEST or on eBay.
