With 2013 being the “Year of the Snake“, the sick sneaker ideas are pretty much laid out on a silver platter. Snakeskin has always been a popular choice for premium-grade kicks, with the slithery, glossy surface above the scaly pattern giving shoes an unmatched level of fierce luxury. The 2013 installment of zodiac-inspired Nikes is indeed the Air Force 1 Low, seen here in the University Red/Black-Court Purple colorway; it features a daring red/black snakeskin on the upper with a sick black snakeskin-wrapped midsole for a Bespoke-like touch of class. Additional details include the fangs on the lace dubrae, the ’2013′ flap on the heel, and the Snake logo on the tongue. Enjoy the detailed gallery below and stay tuned for a U.S. release as these are already up for grabs at overseas retailers such as Sneakersnstuff.
