The Nike Air Max 1 “Keep Rippin Stop Slippin” is Making a Comeback

The Air Max 1 holds a cherished spot in Nike’s vast array of classic silhouettes, resonating with trainer enthusiasts across generations. Now, the Nike Air Max 1 “Keep Rippin Stop Slippin” version, originally part of the “Greatest Hits” pack released in 2008, is making a much-awaited comeback, allowing fans to, once again, indulge in its timeless style and charm.

The “Greatest Hits” pack was a celebration of some of Nike’s most iconic designs. This included the revered Nike Air Stab “Runnin’ Gunnin,” the Nike Air Max 90 “King of the Mountain,” and of course, the aforementioned “Keep Rippin Stop Slippin.” Among these, this stood out for its bold design and eye-catching colour palette. Drawing inspiration from the original Air Safari (a vintage gem from 1987), over the years it has become something of a grail for many sneakerheads across the globe.

The re-release stays true to its 2008 roots, offering a faithful reproduction that will please both old school fans and new ones alike. With its vibrant “Safety Orange” leather upper, this sneaker is a statement piece. The shoe is accented with black leather, sumptuous pony hair, and the iconic Safari print overlays, creating a look that’s as stylish as it is distinctive. Detail is king in this release. From the midfoot Swooshes, “AIR MAX” tongue tags, to the “KEEP RIPPIN STOP SLIPPIN” embroidery gracing the heels, every element is a throwback to the glory days.

Beneath, you’ll find grey midsoles housing sizable orange Air bubbles, providing both unparalleled comfort and a sharp visual appeal. The outsole combines black and translucent rubber, revealing a graphic print underneath – a testament to the American sportswear company’s dedication to blending style with practicality. The Nike Air Max 1 “Keep Rippin Stop Slippin” FD5743-200 is scheduled to release on November 28th, so make sure you keep it locked at Captain Creps for your best chance to secure your size!
