The new “Bamboo Safari” Pack from Nike includes three Premium versions of your favorite runners: the Air Huarache PRM, the Air Max 95 PRM and the Air Max 90 PRM. As the Swoosh leans on the late 80′s print to bridge the gap between the past and present, these three kicks are among the chosen few for the “Bamboo Safari” gathering. The premium pack is crafted predominately in grey tones, accented by Hyper Punch hits throughout. Although the Air Max 1 typically accompanies the Air Max 90 and Air Max 95, the Huaraches fill in admirably, adding a sense of diversity while matching its partners in style and comfort.

A new collection of three sneakers from Nike Sportswear is set to be released this Thursday, February 13th, celebrating the 2014 hardwood showdown in NOLA. The collection takes inspiration from the various aspects of New Orleans that make the city unique.
After returning from an out of this world trip to Houston’s Area 72 facility in 2013, Nike Sportswear heads to New Orleans. Shifting focus from the extraterrestrial inspiration of last years Area 72 collection back toward earth, the Big Easy’s festive and diverse atmosphere serves up a platter of footwear your senses won’t soon forget.
As the NOLA Gumbo League Collection pays homage to what happens on the hardwood, the Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection lionizes the characteristics that make New Orleans different from anyplace else: the food, culture and distinctive wildlife. These three qualities take center stage on Nike’s Flystepper 2K3, Air Up ’14, and Air Force 1 Low CMFT — designs as unique as the city that inspired them.
See below for more info and images and check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have these releases.
Air Up ‘14 – $ 140
Crawfish are a NOLA staple and any New Orleanian will tell you they are best when boiled. A crave-worthy take on the Nike Air Up mimics fresh-out-of-the-pot crawdads. These sneakers get the job done with no seasoning required, featuring a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic.
Air Force 1 Low CMFT – $ 160
As the best of the best come together in the Big Easy, the Nike Air Force 1 pays tribute in kind. Like gumbo, the latest Air Force 1 is a collage of the most memorable Nike Sportswear upper materials — such as foamposite and cork — and prints including elephant, gator, pony hair, and safari.
Flystepper 2K3 – $ 110
In New Orleans, alligators are king of the bayou. In remembrance of another king’s first pair of Nike’s, Nike Sportswear combines the elevated silhouette of the Flystepper and adds the signature perforated quarter panels of the Zoom 2K3. Featuring faux-alligator strap enclosures, the real tribute to the tough skin of Alligator Mississippiensis takes the form of a raised synthetic covering the toe.
