The sheer volume of retro sneakers produced has never been higher than it is these days. Both fan favorites and cult classics are getting their day in the sun, and at the rate we’re going, some of the more obscure pairs are starting to feel like more of a ‘when’ than ‘if’. Here’s one that placed in Complex’s ‘Too Good to be Retroed’ list, the Nike Air Python. The Air Python returns for the first time near the tail end of the Year of the Snake in one of the original 1986 colorways. This white and Metallic Silver makeup will hit European Nike Sportswear stores on September 21st, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for a US release date.

I'd expect hypebeast to know nothing about these . Classics right here and I'm only 16 ; I'll cop because I like them , like I like IIs .
The look like a cheap Jordan because it both shoes were pretty much made with the same design ala the Nike Dunk Hi and Jordan I. See any similarities there? Yeah I think you do. Alot of Nikes from the 80s have the sand structure, ala the Jordan IV and Air Flight 89. See any similarities there? Yeah I think you do!
They look like s#it Jordan II and no, I don't think they are classic, as this is not an old nike design.
@BellePapillon_ young hypebeast! Keep goin!
@BellePapillon_ these arent IIs they are a fusion version they arent classics
@ZachBlake first off, he was saying he likes them because he also likes the II's, and there are a fair number of similarities between the two pairs. Secondly, they are definitely classics. They were originally released in 1986, like the article says. If your gonna bash what someone else says at least get your facts straight.
