Get ready to fight some bots, some moms, hypebeasts and resellers, the Travis Scott x Jordan 1 is set to get a restock May 3rd according to the often reliable app, J23. I remember being so disappointed watching this year’s Super Bowl, not because the game sucked, not because Maroon 5 is bleh, but because these didn’t release during Scott’s guest appearance during halftime. Many sneakerheads and I thought Nike would release like the they did the previous year with the Jordan 3 JTH, which released during Justin Timberlake’s performance. However they did the surprise release while the popular rapper performed at the Grammy’s on the SNKRS app selling out almost instantly. This is one of four collabs that Scott has worked on with Nike as well as his third Jordan. All four sneakers have remained super popular, the Jordan 4 was thought to be one of the best releases of 2018, his Air Force 1 with the detachable swoosh logo aesthetic have been used on other sneakers, and Scott’s name on a Jordan 33 even sold out!
“Travis established aesthetic, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG NRG “Cactus Jack” features a mix of earthy brown nubuck and white leather accented by an interesting backward Swoosh design. Another unique detail comes in the form of a hidden stash pocket at the stitched ankle collar. Cactus Jack heel embossing, retro Nike Air tongue tags and mismatched insoles serve as additional branding elements. Finishing up the design of the shoe is an off white midsole and dark brown rubber outsole”
I know that these are gonna be virtually impossible to get and although I’m not too familiar with Scott’s work, I’m definitely gonna try and cop these. The oversized backwards swoosh makes for an interesting simple touch that is unique yet also doesn’t overshadow the iconic Jordan 1 aesthetic. Keep an eye out for it on the Nike SNKRS app and enter yourself into as many raffles as you can and expect that “L”.
