Formerly referred to as Nike ID, Nike By You has continued to push and expand user-driven customization, the platform currently where it is thanks to global improvements to the system as well as quite a few collaborations with names like Maharishi and Cactus Plant Flea Market. And though the list of models continues to grow, many are still fond of the Nike Air Force 1, creating colorways that are typically homages to unattainable classics — something the brand seems to be in support of as they’ve recently added safari print to the already extensive roster of swatches. Simple or loud, all options across the spectrum are essentially available, allowing one to proffer their own spin on the loud graphic or simply recreate the legends that released under atmos years back. One can even forgo the use of it entirely, instead presenting colorful takes replete with suedes, smooth leathers, and a host of neon to muted tones. But, if you’d rather make use of the new components available, you can mix and match a large variety of safari-emblazoned materials: some hued in black and grey while others prefer even more subdued hits of black on black, Photon Dust on Phantom, and Burnt Sienna on Gold.
