Nike’s Air Safari is Not Defined by its Family

Nike’s Air Safari is the Luke Wilson of the sneaker world. On its own merits it deserves plenty of credit. However, due to the fact that it originally released in 1987, it will forever live in the shadows of its slightly more successful brother, the Air Max 1. But where the AM1 has a single, overpowering feature, the Safari manages well-proportioned harmony – a kind of classical charm.

The Nike Air Safari will be returning in the lead up to Air Max Day, dropping on March 14 at select stockists and online.
