The countdown is on, as the launch of the Nike Air Max 1 "Safari" is just days away. If you're on the fence about picking up a pair, German retailer Overkill provides a side-by-side comparison between the coming retro and the original atmos x Air Max 1 from 2002. While the overall shape of the new release is true to the original, the shoe is markedly different in terms of the material story, as the canvas toe box is replaced with hairy suede, and the gum rubber outsole is swapped out for an icy translucent variety. See more looks in the gallery below, and expect the kicks to hit stores on Monday, March 14.

Release Date: 3/14/16 (Monday)
