The deadly black mamba snake has a long history in the world of sneakers. Before it became associated with Kobe Bryant, it served as the design inspiration for the Air Jordan 19 in 2004. The shoe’s sleek and unique serpentine aesthetic made it one of the most popular signature Jordan models of the mid-00’s. Now the snake-inspired signature sneaker is set for a re-release 15 years after it originally dropped, as it’s returning to market in April 2019. Set to arrive in a classic black/gold colorway, the shoe will likely feature a black patent leather toebox, large tonal black mesh lace cover, and regal gold detailing on the heel collar and outsole. We’ve got a ways yet to wait until this cult-classic Jordan returns, but until then you can stay up to date on all things Jordan with our Jordan Release Dates page.
