2003 was a banner year in sport and sneaker culture. LeBron James was
drafted in ‘03, and in that same year, some of the best colorways and
collaborations hit shelves and stormed stockrooms, including one of the
greatest Air Max 1 designs of all time, the atmos x Air Max 1 ‘Safari’.
Japanese sneaker community staple atmos partnered with Nike to release a
shoe honoring the OG Air Safari and the OG Air Max 1, and now King
James is partnering with atmos to pay tribute to the ’03 grail. The
LeBron 16 Low x atmos ‘Safari’ sports the same mini Swoosh found on the
toe box of the Air Max 1, as well as a gum outsole, premium materials
and color-blocking pulled straight from the original.
