Next year marks the Year of the Snake on the Chinese Zodiac calendar and with the ever growing popularity of the reptiles skin we're expecting many snake inspired shoes from just about every brand. Although there's still a few weeks left before 2013 hits, one shoe customizer opted to not wait for the new year to debut his custom "python" Jordan 4's. This entirely reworked design takes apart the bred colorway and replaces it with a new snakeskin build. Although the shoe was done on a grade-school version the Shoe Surgeon, as he calls himself, can make replicate the work on just about any size.

Check out the pics and let us know what you think of the insane custom job.
