Not too many basketball sneakers have crossed over into general popularity quite like the Air Foamposite One. While Penny Hardaway definitely helped make it popular in the ’90s when he adopted the silhouette as his own signature shoe, the model has since superseded even him and become a favorite amongst sneakerheads everywhere. One reason for that is due to the many ways you can freak the upper, with this new “Snakeskin” option being the latest to prove that notion perfectly.



Opting for a scaly black & white texture, this set of Foams is definitely built for those that dare to be a little bold on the court. The python-inspired hue is complimented by a black base that takes over the laces, tongue, insole and eyestays, while “Habanero Red” accents are dispersed throughout via tabs on both the heel & tongue, Swoosh branding and most notably on the midsole. The herringbone-style outsole adds even more texture to a shoe that truly takes “wild-style” to another level.

Embrace your reptilian side this spring with the Nike Air Foamposite One “Snakeskin,” which arrives on April 15 for $220 USD. More pics below:
