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.

This Saturday marks the release of Nike Sportswear’s ‘Safari Pack’, a look into the past that gives us the OG Air Safari as well as that familiar look on fellow class of 1987 alum Air Trainer 1.  In much the same way that the Air Trainer 1 takes on the Air Safari’s signature look, these new Nike Air Safari LE releases deviate from the original formula by a single degree.  The yellow-accented pair looks almost like a faded take on the OG orange, and its use of mesh instead of the traditional leather toebox provides another space into which the blue-accented edition finds its niche.  Check these out in greater detail after the jump, let us know how they compare to the design that established Tinker Hatfield’s famed tribute to ostrich leather and find your pair at NSW stockists soon.  via SM

Ever since the first pair of Air Ralson Lites dropped last summer, Nike Sportswear has been continually increasing the breadth of its ‘deconstructed’ silhouettes.  First came the Dunk and Air Force 1 previews and more recently the Blazer, but it was a runner in the Air Pegasus ’92 Decon that beat all of those to retail.  Following up on that thread we’ve seen spun through the Lunar Flow PRM and Free 5.0 is the Nike Air Safari Deconstruct in a couple of suede builds that come off as similar to the VNTG pack releases on which we’re also waiting.  Black and grey pairs with burgundy ankle collars await your click on the jump below; let us know which one you like best with a comment and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for release info. via HS

Nike Air Safari LE – Black – Grey – Red

We got a glimpse of what Nike Sportswear could do at the peak of Safari frenzy back in 2008, but that was only a taste of what’s to come in the Air Safari’s 25th anniversary. Arguably the most stylish of Tinker Hatfield’s 1987 ‘Air Pack’, the Nike Air Safari is about to touch down in a huge way with new VNTG drops, the new Lunar Safari+ update, that impressive Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ and some brand new colorways like the one pictured above. Their Air Jordan III-leaning appearance reminds us that Tinker’s ’87 was very much like Michael’s ’87-88: both produced output with numbers beyond an entire generation’s loftiest goals and though their best was still to come, many purists still look at that late ’80s period as a definitive peak (and don’t even get us started on how far Hatfield was ahead of the curve with his use of greys for balance). This pair is labeled as a sample with no definitive release date; would you grab a pair if they hit retailers along with the rest of the 25th anniversary Air Safaris? Photos: Passover

2012 is very much a marquee year for the Nike Air Safari, with the model making waves from the OG version to the updated Lunar look. Coming closer to the original in terms of the silhouette used, albeit not in the selection of colors, is this Nike Air Safari LE sample for Holiday 2012, a safari that we can locate more specifically in the jungle thanks to the lush green tones coating the upper.
