Nike have started the month of Air Max with a knockout blow. Digging through a myriad back-catalogue of highly sought after, cult classic, fabled and obscure AIR MAX releases from past decades, Nike have diligently brought back the infamous Atmos Air Max 1 B 'Safari'. Originally released in 2003 in collaboration with Japanese retailer Atmos, the iconic design elements and sub-Saharan influences are bountiful. From the use of Nike's 'Safari' print on the leather mudguard to embroidered 'Mini-Swoosh' detailing on the toe and enlarged Swoosh on the heel wrap, the Air Max 1 'Safari' serves as a golden chapter in the illustrious Air Max 1 story. The pantone proficient flex of Brown & Tan suede, with alternating Green and Gold on the Swoosh's medial and lateral placements contrast sublimely with Black mesh tongues and laces with a Mustard Yellow poly-suede lining providing an oasis of comfort. Nike's bringback replicates all of the above and then some, striking out on it's own with an updated list of specs. Replacing the original gum sole with in iced out waffle tread, the mesh toe box of the '03 version is brushed aside by a golden slub suede with extra nap. While older heads may be jaded with the two tweaks, it could be argued any changes are aimed at preserving piety for the original with a fresh take on a theme that belongs wholly to the Swoosh.

The Nike Air Max 1 Premium 'Safari' will be priced at $199.95 AUD | Size: Men's US 8,9,9.5,10,10.5,11,12,13
