It was back in 1987 when the Nike Air Python had debuted. Nike had designed the model by combining elements from the Air Force 2 and the Air Jordan 2. Since Nike had drawn inspiration from the Air Jordan 2, the “Swoosh” logo has always been absent from the Air Python as well. Instead, its heels featured square-shaped “Nike Air Python” branding and its tongues simply had “Nike” spelled out on them in block letters. Of course, the silhouette’s signature feature is its faux snakeskin uppers. Nike has utilized the Hasta Green hue for the latest colorway of the Air Python, which has already hit the shelves.
The primary, predominant element that the Air Python had borrowed from the Nike Air Force 2 had been its soles. It was only recently that the Air Python began to receive the “retro” treatment when Nike decided to bring it back in limited quantities. In fact, the Air Python made its comeback in Fall 2013, twenty-six years after it had debuted and it had received a bit of a makeover at that time. It had been the first time that plain, smooth leather had been incorporated into the model’s uppers, making it appear even more bold and fashionable, staying true to its lifestyle vibes.
It 2016, Nike has not really dropped as many Air Python releases as in the past. Even back in 2015, a decent number of Air Python iterations had arrived at retailers over the course of the year. Sneakerheads who are fans of the model have probably wondering when they will have the chance to grab another pair and now this “Hasta Green” rendition is here. Thus, its premium, snakeskin-textured leather uppers are dressed up entirely in the Hasta Green hue. It also appears to be equipped with all-White midsoles, each with an Air Zoom unit incorporated into it, and Gum Rubber outsoles.
Sure, the Air Python has been absent from retail shelves for quite some time, but sneakerheads will not have to wait any longer. They may go ahead and cop a pair of the Nike Air Python “Hasta Green” right away from select Nike retailers for $150.
