Nike Air Safari LEOriginally released in 1987, the Nike Air Safari was a sneaker design ahead of its time. Despite its initial unfavorable reception, the Nike Air Safari has grown to be a highly sought after sneaker. The main signature of this running sneaker has always been the grey speckled panels, which were not seen on other sneakers at the time of its debut. This signature element is still present in all the retro models and continues to be considered its biggest draw.
