Quite the select group of classic Nike Airs will celebrate a quarter century’s worth of existence this year, and in this upcoming release, you’ll see two of them come together as one. Here’s a look at the Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’, which combines the Nike Air Trainer 1 in the historic Air Safari ’87 colorway; just like the OG, this Air Trainer 1 ‘Safari’ utilizes the couch-inspired Safari print on the upper, the black synthetic leather panel, and the safari orange leather interior lining from the early-2000 Retro (the OG had a plush lining), but borrows some of the Trainer heritage with the perforated toe-box and the iconic strap. For some, this marriage of Air Trainer and Air Safari is one that is long overdue as we saw what ‘could’ve’ been with the similar Air Trainer 1 in the Safari colorways from roughly a decade ago, but not to worry because these have arrived at retailers in Asia like Limited Edt. and should hit the states soon in ‘Quickstrike’ fashion. More images below, so take a look and we’ll fill you in on other Air Pack tributary releases of the year!
