Thirty years ago, Nike made its unmistakable Air Safari print an icon among sneakerheads. Now, it’s back, and on a new shoe that combines not one but five quintessential Nike designs. Adidas has made a splash this week, too, with a new Primeknit in a toned-down khaki hue. Asics makes a debut for us, showing off a game-changing shoe that raises the bar for the standard American sneaker. Finally, Converse comes back, with a brand new—though vintage inspired—pair of kicks that draws influence from uniforms of the United States Armed Forces. When you get your fill of these footwear options check out this list of comfortable yet artistic sneakers.
