Michael Strahan Instagrams New Nike Snakeskin Shoes, Hugh Jackman Responds in Kind

July 16, 2015

American television host and former NFL football player Michael Strahan was so enamored with his new Nike Air Force One custom shoes that he posted a photo of them on Instagram. The custom made shoes apparently feature real skin from a python, shark, lamb, and eel. Australian actor Hugh Jackman, in an attempt to one up his friend, posted a photo of himself on the social media site with a live python around his neck, while on vacation in Australia.

Nike has been making Air Python shoes in a variety of colors for a few years now, but the information I’ve gathered from the Internet is that they are made of man made materials and the scale patterns are a print.

Strahan’s pair of Air Force One customs, well the photo makes the material look fairly realistic. So question of the day is, do you have a pair of snakeskin kicks in your shoe collection? Or would you prefer the man made materials that are made to look like scales and tails?

John B. Virata keeps a western hognose snake, a ball python, two corn snakes, a king snake, and two leopard geckos. His first snake, a California kingsnake, was purchased at the Pet Place in Westminster, CA for $5. His first pet reptile was a green anole that arrived in a small box via mail order.
