Classics Revisited: Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 ‘Safari’ (2003)

Atmos X Nike Air Max 1 Safari


Kicking off a fresh week of Classics Revisited segments is a look at some of the most coveted Air Max 1 releases of the last decade+ era. Although it would almost impossible to recount every single Air Max 1 release that has become available since the sneaker first debuted in 1987, we’d like to place a worthy spotlight on the ‘Ones’ the carried the sneaker game, and what better than one of the most memorable collaborations in history? Japanese retailer Atmos brought back the Air Max 1 and Air Safari in cohesion fifteen years after the two sneaker models debuted side-by-side; featuring a Safari print on the mudguard and ankle collar, a canvas twill material at the toe, a soft suede on the upper and heel, and a gum outsole, the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 ‘Safari’ boasted incredible quality in craftsmanship in an outstanding colorway that grasped ‘Safari’ undertones to a tee. One of the most prominent features of the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 is the miniature swoosh on the outer toe of the forefoot – a detail seen in very few earlier Air Max 1 ‘Retro’ releases of the 2000’s as well as recent Patta collaborations. The Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 ‘Safari’ stands as one of the undeniable heavyweights of sneaker history and is considered, by some, to be the greatest Air Max 1 ever. We’ve got more angles of this decade-old gem below so take a look and stay tuned as we will re-visit other Air Max 1 classics throughout the week!
