The entire 2013 Year of the Snake footwear collection from Nike Sportswear was unveiled today, including the Huarache 2K4 with its own reptilian makeover.

The Year of the Snake Huarache 2K4 features a vibrant red colorway with hits of red snake print leather with gold stitching at the toe and heel as symbols of good luck for the Chinese New Year.  The purple-lined Swoosh and the seal pattern of the characters “癸巳(Gui Si)” on the tongue highlight the Chinese zodiac sign.  One more unique feature added to the Year of the Snake Huarache is the "snake eye" in each of the shoe's cut out ankle areas.

Look for the Year of the Snake Huarache 2K4 to be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers on January 25th.
