Not only Air Max Month. Nike carries on releasing some updated historic silhouettes, giving say to the sneakers addicted looking for some good nostalgia. In this flaw we could put the release of the Air Safari QS “Jungle Flashback”.

With a classic pale gray print insert all over, the upper is made of soft synthetic black and orange leather in the OG rendition. This model was the first one featuring the infamous “Safari” motif and was launched in 1987 with Air Max, Air Sock and Air Trainer. Tinker Hatfield, the mind behind this iconic print, was inspired by a couch covered with ostrich leather, seen in a NYC store. Thence he decided to make a personal own version of this luxurious material: the Safari print indeed.

Along with the OG color, Nike will release a triple black rendition too. Both will be available on March 24th on Nike SNKRS app at 9:00 CET and at selected retailers (price € 111)
