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.

Nike Sportswear “Safari” Pack – Release Reminder

June 29th, 2012 by | 12 comments

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.

Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ – Available on eBay

May 30th, 2012 by | 10 comments

Nike describes the Air Yeezy 2 design as a result of a cross-inspiration from classic Trainers and exotic materials. The same could be said for the Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’, no? In fact, the Air Trainer 1 is the original Trainer, and Safari is certainly one of the earliest and most exotic materials ever utilized by Nike, so the Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ follows the same blueprint as the Air Yeezy 2. The Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ might just be the best ‘Retro’ sneaker of the year because it’s almost like a two-in-one, so there’s good reason why a select number of sneakerheads are zeroed in on these over the other big-ticket June items. If these trump all other June releases for you, cop ‘em in advance of the established U.S. release date right now from reneussance on eBay.

Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ – Detailed Images

It’s hard to predict the results when two worlds collide. We’ve seen Nike put out some interesting hybrids and combinations that seem to make sense in theory or on paper, but none has made more sense than the Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’, slated to release at select Nike Sportswear retailers next month. It combines two of Nike’s most time-honored classics born in what might be one of the greatest years of Nike (1987), using the Air Trainer 1 as the body and the Air Safari as the flair with the signature colorway blocked perfectly on the upper. The Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ has been one of the most trending units here on Sneaker News and should be a hit with fans of old-school Nike – but how will it fare with the newer crowd that has experienced far more exposure to Nike Basketball, Jordans, and Foamposites?

What happens when you take one of 1987′s standouts, apply almost the exact same motif that made another of that year’s graduating class an instant classic and release them on the twenty-fifth anniversary?  One answer is “an instant sell-out”, and another is this new Nike Air Trainer 1 done up to look like the original Air Safari.  Sneaker News scooped you this morning on a mid-June Euro drop, and they’ve already started arriving at select Asian retailers.  This ‘Safari Pack’ mashup is sure to move quickly, so keep an eye on the ‘Bay for early pairs making their way across the Pacific and stick with Sneaker News for info on the US release coming soon.  via ST

Nike Air Safari Pack – Euro Release Date

June is poised to be one of the greatest months of the year for sneaker releases with a set-list consisting of the Nike LeBron 9 ‘Miami Vice’, the Air Jordan XII ‘Obsidian’, and the yet-t0-be-postponed Air Yeezy 2, but give some credit to the Air Safari Pack, which is set for a release very soon. Part of the pack is a true Retro of the Air Safari 1 (minus the leather lined interior – the OG has a plush material) and the Air Trainer 1 in a Safari-precision concept. While a concrete date hasn’t been set for the U.S. just yet (although we did give you the heads up on a May/June release), the Nike Air Safari Pack has a release date set for retailers in Europe like Size?, currently scheduled at June 15th, so keep that circled on your calendar if that information applies to you and stay tuned for more solid dates regarding a stateside release.
