In 1987, visionary Nike footwear designer Tinker Hatfield stumbled upon a sofa covered in real ostrich skin at a luxury furniture store in New York City. The speckled leather stuck with Tinker and evolved into a now-classic pattern that has graced such styles as the namesake Nike Air Safari, Nike Dunk, Mercurial Vapor Super Fly Elite and Air Max 1. Now, for the first time in a long time, Safari returns to the Air Force 1.
For the entire month of April, NIKEiD is offering this classic print—in classic black on brown as well as black on gray—with the Air Force 1 iD. Combine it with the standard base palette of high-quality nubuck suede, full-grain leather and tonal elephant and your One of One Air Force 1 is just a few clicks away. (Quantities are limited)
