    Just a head's up guys, Nike will be releasing a Safari Foam 1 PRM this Holiday season. No pics on the release sheet, but it's style # 525470-003, color Anthracite/Total Orange/Black. I'd guess that means Safari print body, black durabuck lace eyelets & lining, and Total Orange Penny logo & accents. Your guess is as good as mine on the color of the outsole. Could be Total Orange. Could be black. Could be Ice. Just wanted to pass the info along.

    Peace,
    J

    EDIT:

    Here's a semi-teaser pic:

    Thanks for the info. Could be great. A lot will depend on the outsole choice IMO

    These sound like the glossy black foams with the orange speckles floating around the 'net. They had a solid black sole, which I love and miss.

    Pass on these.

    Wheres the NYK foams tho? :nerd:

    The foam line is done. Should have kept it classic, but nike is a business so kudos to them, who knows, these might be actually hot

    Dozo u talking bout these?

    Hmm
    Sounds interesting. Fighter jets were nice but army camos arent too appealing to me. Lets see how these turn out

    Nah, first color in the color code is Anthracite (Nike's word for grey). The body will be normal grey safari print. They will be trying to directly mimic the Air Safari, but on a Foam 1.

    Should be an easy photoshop for someone with better skills than me, lol.

    Peace,

    Interesting... It'd be dope if they did a Hunter Camo-type joint with this type of print and colors:

    Obviously, that's not the colorway, so chill out. It'd be dope though, in my opinion.  I wonder what they're gonna look like. Thanks for the info.

    Anthracite isn't just Nike's color. It's a real color that other brands use too (I have an anthracite North Face). Anyway, anthracite is a really dark grey, so it is possible that it could be those Foams up there.

    Anthracite is actually the technical name for coal. Yes, other companies use a color also called anthracite, which is usually a very dark grey, but 99% of the time Nike's version is a blue-ish grey that they have used for years.

    If this model has "Safari" in the title, why would you guys expect it to look any different than what the actual Air Safari looks like?

    will reserve judgement

    in the mean time, im glad i dont have to urge to buy every foam just because its a foam.... saves me from tragic releases that could happen.

    yes sir, these are the ones I was referring too.
    If its these, im probably passing. I dont care for the specs and I have alot of black foams as is.

    Seeing theres a "Premium" label attached to these, it means they'll prob retail for $235 like the fighter jets.

    Nikes released the pearls and royals so many times. Why not retro some other colorways? :smh:

    ^^^ real pearls only retro'd once... royals twice. doesnt seem like "so many times" to me.
