The Air Force 1 is without a doubt one of the most important silhouettes ever released. While Nike has done a good job of bringing back some of the once elusive pairs like the "Taiwan" or "Hong Kong" in recent years, there are still some highly sought after colorways that have yet to receive the retro treatment.

Nike's latest deep dive into its Air Force 1 archive is to bring back the "Ivory Snake" from 1996. This premium take originally released back in the mid '90s exclusively in Asia. It sports a clean white leather upper with brown snakeskin covering the Swoosh and heel tab. Retro "Nike Air" branding stitched on each heel tab and a black-and-white tongue tag complete the simplistic design. 

Look for the "Ivory Snake" Nike Air Force 1 to hit select retailers like 43einhalb on May 22. A stateside release has yet to be confirmed.
