Originally released in 2002, the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Safari” is rightly one of the most coveted takes on the Swoosh-branded silhouette to ever hit shelves. A perfect blend of two Tinker Hatfield-designed classics (the Air Safari and Air Max 1), the kicks are not only an awesomely unique hybrid, but one that aged great with time thanks to its premium construction.

Now the design is making an unexpected return here in 2016. Largely the same as the original, the upcoming drop boasts a Flax/Kumquat-Chestnut colorway and swaps out the original gum rubber outsole in favor of one of the icy translucent blue variety. For an added touch, the toe’s original mesh construction has also been swapped out in favor of a nappy long-grain suede.

Look for this year’s atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Safari” retro to begin hitting select NSW spots February 27.
