Like the Nike Air Safari Pack and the Nike Air Safari Deconstruct Sandtrap Team Brown, here is another Safari colourway to dig on, the "Nike Air Safari VNTG Gorge Green Bamboo," which falls under the 2012 Nike Vintage line. The following information is via the UK retailer End, where you can currently buy these kicks from. No U.S. suppliers as of yet, but we are on the lookout:
"First released in 1987 and designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, the Air Safari was years ahead of its time. The unusual design, featuring ostrich leather uppers, became a slow-burning cult hit, thanks in part to its association with hip-hop artist Biz Markie. Returning for 2012 in a limited release of VNTG colourways…"
Features/looks that make the 2012 Nike Vintage line unique include scuffed suede and an oxidized midsole while the remainder of the upper is shaped by a thick nylon and Safari print encrusted leather.
International shipping is tax free If you decide to purchase the Air Safari VNTG Gorge Green Bamboo now from UK retailer End.
