Sneaker News has made a couple mentions of the Nike Air Force 1’s 30th anniversary overshadowing the Air Max 1’s 25th birthday, and what about that other alumni of the class of 1987? We know from our previews a short while ago that we’ll have a spread of Air Safari releases later in the year, and now even more of their signature look as the Air Force 1 iD adds Safari print options next month. As we see on samples of the High and Low versions, the traditional earthy spotted stuff will be among your choices, but what about all the crazy colors we saw starting back in 2008 from Nike Sportswear or more recently from the AF1 Bespoke Experience at their 21 Mercer flagship? Limited quantities of these dropping April 1st on NIKEiD will reveal the full answer, but in the meantime check out what we know to expect from these: black/grey/white with the option for a gum sole, or in other words, pure 2012 style with a bit of ’87 sampled out of respect to a fellow veteran.
