Approaching the anticipated reissue of Nike’s legendary atmos x Air Max 1 “Safari,” German sneaker outpost Overkill has taken the opportunity to present a side-by-side comparison of the 2002 edition and the forthcoming 2016 version. Considered by Air Max fans to be the most collectible Air Max 1 of all time, the “Safari” retains all its signature features for the 2016 re-release, plus a few new tweaks. In favor of a canvas toe box, Nike has added a textured faux-fur fabric, while an ice-blue outsole is swapped in for 2002’s gum sole.
Fans of the original version should be pleased with the new execution, which is a well-appointed continuation of the Safari story.
Watch for these to drop at retailers like Overkill on Monday, March 14, for $178.
