Nike’s “Animal Instinct” Collection Features Timeless Sneakers With Safari Prints

Step into the wild side of the realm of sneakers.


While the Swoosh is no stranger to presenting animal-inspired styles, this batch of shoes is guaranteed to stand out. This fall, Nike is slated to launch a new footwear collection focused on animal prints called “Animal Instinct”.

Starting with the Air Max 90, the multicolored upper is made of mesh, suede, leather, and safari prints like zebra, cheetah, snakeskin, and snake skin. Further completing the design are red leather Swooshes and red detailing around the Air unit of the sneaker.

With regard to the Air More Uptempo, these exotic accents are back and rest on the sneaker’s recognizable “AIR” inscription. The colorway is completed by a white leather base and sole unit, red Swooshes, and a black tongue.

On the Air Force 1 Mid, which has various overlays with animal-inspired embellishments, a white leather base of the top is supported by a pink sole unit.

The Blazer Mid completes the range of options with a more subdued look that includes hits of each material in addition to a basic white and off-white composition. Finally, each colorway features slash lines that display the Nike logo on the tongue and sockliner.

It is anticipated that the whole Nike “Animal Instinct” line will release on Nike website in the upcoming months.
