UPDATE: We have some hot new pics from Hype DC and we can now name them as an Air Max 1 'Safari' stockist! Limited quantities will be available from select stores on Monday, March 14. Check here for all the deets.
We have to be honest, we've had a pair of these sitting around the office for a minute now. The rumour mill has been running wild on these since the internet first got word of a re-release earlier this year, and after sitting back and admiring the shoe, we can finally give you a solid release date!
You'll notice that this release isn't an exact OG of the 2003 model, but it is pretty damn close! This 'Safari' Air Max 1 has an icy, glow in the dark, outsole, and controversially favours a very hairy nappy suede over the OG's canvas which has led some lucky sample holders to take to the toe box with a shaving razor. Which one do you reckon is hotter, the 2003 or the 2016?? Let us know!
