The Nike Air Python Sneakers have appeared in a new colorway: Metallic Tawny.

The new color scheme adds sophistication and luster to the already elegant sneaker. The outer leather of the Nike Air Python is embossed with a snakeskin pattern -- as the name would suggest -- in a burnt copper color. The laces and soles pop in clear and crisp white, while the inner shoe and eyelets balance the sneaker's metallic tone with a tawny auburn color.

Like so many of Nike's recent releases, the Nike Air Python Metallic Tawny is a renovated version of a retro sneaker. The original Nike Air Python was first released in 1987, in the heyday of snakeskin-patterned footwear. This update adds some extra iridescence and introduces the classic shoe to a new generation of sneaker lovers.
