Ever progressive and enigmatic, the Nike Air Python shoe expands its stable of colors with the Nike Air Python Lux. The elevated sneaker calls upon premium details and materials to exude a street- and style-wise vibe that reflects its basketball roots and trademark cutting-edge aesthetic.

Tapping into its past, the sneaker references the creativity that surrounded the cult shoe design in 1987, when it debuted. It fuses these inspirations with the latest innovations, even as the shoe’s actual origins and heritage remain a mystery.
