Nike Air Max 95 “Safari” – Black/Granite/Safety Orange/Black – ($180)
In 1987, Tinker Hatfield designed what some consider to be the first lifestyle sneaker, the Nike Safari. His use of what has come to be known as the safari print has made its way onto several Nike models since then, including this Air Max 95. Adding to the inspiration, the 2008 Nike Air Max 1 Supreme “Keep Rippin Stop Slippin” Quickstrike provides the color choices and the use of long black horsehair, along with the translucent outsole that reveals an illustration found on the 2008 model.

Lions, tigers, and Blazers – oh my? Venturing deep into the wild for inspiration, the Nike Sportswear design team emerges with three new looks in the forthcoming Blazer Safari Collection.
Each pair, assembled with a vulcanized sole, draws elements from the safari to create a distinctive, themed aesthetic. The first pair represents a preying feline, blending a full grain black leather upper with a leopard print, pony-hair Swoosh, heel tab, and tongue. The second, inspired by the slithering predator, features a mahogany, nubuck upper and snake-inspired accents on the Swoosh and heel. The third pair ties the collection together, illustrating the entangled environment of the jungle itself. Covered in a camouflage underlay, it features green TPU overlays, meant to resemble swinging vines that mask the jungle’s fiercest creatures.
The Nike Sportswear Blazer Mid “Safari” Collection releases Saturday – October 11th – in-store and via email/iMessage order at Packer Shoes.
