Snakeskin texture is back, with news that Nike are reissuing 2003’s Air Max 90 ‘Python’ in a one-for-one remake. Fuelled by the retro revival of the ‘Ivory Snake’ AF-1, recent rumours have been found to be true. This cold-blooded Air Max stomper recalls the wildly experimental material choices of the era.
Much like the real-life serpent, the leather upper provides water resistance and optimal warmth. Its namesake is seen on the mid panel, flowing to the frontal area and eyestay. Tonal lining matched to the Swoosh and midsole accent is a master class in colour-blocking.
With original pairs now over 15 years old and crumbling, mark June 13 on your calendar to re-up a classic from Nike retailers like Sole Classics.
