Serpentine textures are back on the Air Jordan 1 this year via the black and red colorway pictured.

Unlike the snakeskin Jordan 1s from last year, these come via the Retro High Nouveau build rather than the Pinnacle one, meaning that they'll be a lot more affordable. Of course, it also means they lack the solid gold accenting that made the Pinnacles so special.

While the shoe uses a black/red combination, it's far from the original "Bred" look, its reds playing a much smaller role.

There is no Jordan release date information available yet for this sneaker.

UPDATE 3/25: New images via Sneaker Politics, who has a few sizes in stock.
