Just like a real python's ambush attack style, we definitely didn't see this one coming – Nike is bringing back the Air Python. The hybrid ball boot, which is the progeny of the unholy marriage of the Air Jordan 2 and Air Force 2, returns 26 years after its birth and has undergone a couple of adjustments. In line with Nike's crackdown on exotic materials, the snakeskin leather seen on the original has been replaced with a debossed, printed leather that steals the snaky steez but doesn't require the hunting trips to the Amazon. We're curious about how this one is going to fare at retail, it stands out as rather different from most of the sneaks that squeak into our inbox. What do you think of it? The Nike Air Python drops this month in white/silver, with a white/brown pair to follow in October. News via Nike, INC.
