In 2002, Japanese retailer atmos teamed up with Nike to create a unique version of the classic runner. The design was aimed at increasing sales to their customer base and creating a unique, never-seen-before version. The creatives at atmos combined elements of the Nike Air Safari with the silhouette of the Air Max 1, in what is now regarded as a 15th anniversary tribute by many, and is considered one of the greatest Air Max 1 colorways of all time.
