The new snake-inspired model features a number of lovingly designed details, like the scale-like pattern on the shoe itself.

The heel counter is made from black, glossy plastic, like the eyelets for the shoe laces, although the first two eyelets are gold, resembling glittering snake-eyes. The black New Balance logo and the shoe collar are made from printed, black patent leather, and even the shoe-laces themselves look like black scaled snakeskin.
