44. Nike Air Python
Year Released: 1986
This sneaker has been something of a mystery for decades. Seemingly an exotic cross between the Air Jordan II and the Air Force II, the Air Python is very rarely seen, and that mostly on obscure Japanese websites and on sneaker message boards. The Python predated the Safari as a lifestyle-centric shoe, but its seeming hyper-limited release and dearth of backstory has rendered it more apocrypha than Gospel. An unannounced retro would be entirely appropriate.
