An Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 "Safari" retro is happening soon, as revealed by the leaked official product images shown here.
The original "Safari" Air Max 1 (released in 2002) is one of the most treasured Air Max pairs out there, coming at time when safari prints on sneakers other than the Nike Air Safari were still a novel thing, as were sneaker collaborations.
In a move that may upset longtime fans of the shoe, changes have been made. The traditional gum outsole is gone, replaced by an icy one. In addition, the toebox this time around has a furry treatment and the overall shape is different.
There is no confirmed sneaker release date from Nike on this pair, but sources are saying to expect a Feb. 27 arrival.
