Nike Sneakily Retro the OG Air Safari

Nike pulled a fast one on us! Amid the retro hysteria of the Air Max 93, Air Max 180 and Air Max 98, the Swoosh also sneakily revived the Air Safari without even so much as a little roar.

Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Air Safari hit stores in 1987 – the same year as Hatfield's revolutionary Air Max 1. Despite its lack of Visible Air, the Air Safari held its own due to its eye-catching orange leather upper and heavily speckled overlays. These defining features have ensured the retro runner's icon status.

This year's retro brings back the Air Safari in OG colours as well as 'Triple Black' for something a little more low-key.

Nike's Air Safari QS is available right now in OG and 'Triple Black' colourways through select stockists, including Mexican boutique Alive.
