Tutorial: Create your own Air Force 1 'Safari' with Nike By You

Because of the new Nike By You options which will come online today at the Air Force 1 it is possible to create an Air Force 1 'Safari' or 'Elephant'. To help you on your way a little bit, in this blog post we explain step by step how you can create the Air Force 1 'Safari' using the Nike By You configurator. Of course you can indicate your own twist by creating your own unique Air Force 1 'Safari'.

But before we start we need to get to the right Nike By You page. You can do this by pressing the button below.

Nike Air Force 1 'Safari' By You

This version of the Air Force 1 is of course inspired by the Air Max 1 'Safari' from Atmos. Characteristic of this version is the 'Safari' print on the upper part and the brown colours. With each option, the red arrow will indicate which option you should choose to create the 'Safari' colourway.


We start with the nose. Choose the Pure Platinum / Dark Grey / Safariprint option.

For the upper leather of the toe box, choose the Gold Suede Leather.

Collar / Tongue Lining / Band

For the collar and lining you can choose the colour black/ This means that the edge of the tongue and the inside of the sneaker will be black. The same goes for the edge at the opening of the sneaker.


The tongue of 'Safari' colorway is light brown. Therefore choose the Burnt Sienna / Gold Suede / Safariprint option.

Label Tongue

For the label on the tongue you can choose the Medium Olive / Black option. Of course this fits perfectly with the rest of the details.

Eyestay / Lacehole

Just like with the toebox, here you choose the Gold Suede Leather option.


For the side of the sneaker you can choose Burnt Sienna Leather. This is a slightly darker colour brown and provides more depth on the sneaker.

Sole Border

At the sole edge, the 'Safari' print finally comes back. Choose the Pure Platinum / Dark Grey / Safariprint option.

For the Swoosh, just like the toe box, for example, choose the Gold Suede Leather option.

Lip on the back/heel

At the tab of the sneaker we choose a slightly darker brown colour, namely the Burnt Sienna Leather option.

Logo tab on the back / Text

With the Nike Air logo on the heel you can of course choose the Medium Olive option. What you can also do is add your own initials or a different text.


The sneaker is already beginning to take shape. For the laces we have chosen the black option.

For the midsole we will of course go for a classic white midsole. Therefore choose the option white.

What fits an Air Force 1 better than a Gum outsole. We have therefore chosen the Gum Medium Brown option for the outsole.

Once all options have been chosen, the end result is there: The Air Force 1 'Safari'. Now it is important to be ready at 18:00 behind your PC, laptop, tablet or mobile phone, because then these options will become available and, because you have already created this design, you can order as a whole by just choosing your size and completing your order. Good luck and have fun!
