Travis Scott is the gift that keeps on giving. From his countless collabs with Nike, to merch for his music and films, Travis Scott gives his fans many ways to flex his work. Now, we have a new Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack” to look forward to.
Though it’s not his first time tinkering with the retro silhouette, this will be his most fanciful take on the sneaker. The design was first revealed to the world when he gave one lucky fan a pair off his feet at his Made In America performance. The pair was even signed by La Flame himself, which makes for an incredible pay-off if the fan chooses to sell the shoes.
The new Air Force 1 boasts patchwork uppers earthy tones. Panels of brown, yellow, purple and grey are adorned with Cactus Jack branding. The medley of textiles and textures – canvas, corduroy and leather – give the shoes a homey quality reminiscent of a handmade quilt.
Aside from the patchwork uppers, the sneaker has two added features – a corduroy and canvas sheath that covers the laces, and a tan canvas strap on the heel that is held in place with a gold button. To complete the earthy look, the shoes boast sail midsoles paired with pastel green stitching, and gum rubber outsoles. This is officially one of the most muted yet busy sneakers we have seen all year.
