Since the news leaked earlier this year, sneakerheads around the world have been hungry with hype and impatiently waiting for the official release. Now, the moment has finally arrived: tomorrow, November 16th, the Nike x Travis Scott Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack” will come to light. Check out the details of one of the most powerful and highly-anticipated drops of recent times.
Travis Scott’s heritage and style are again inserted into sneaker form, thanks to Nike. The Nike x Travis Scott Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack” pays tribute to the community and the environment in which Travis Scott built his legacy and grew into a legend, learning to polish his own craft and style with his unique creativity.
With the foundation of the classic silhouette of the AF1, this version adds an assortment of select high-quality materials, mixing suede with corduroy, and leather with burlap and canvas. The mixture creates a visual effect that leaves us speechless, combining different patterns, colors and patchwork prints. Urban graffiti writing, printed lettering patterns, and solid tones are seen throughout. This combination of elements represents the various influences that have touched the life of Travis Scott: the durability of workwear clothing, the colors of nature and the outdoors, the eclectic surrealism of Astroworld. In this latest Cactus Jack there is room for everything.
The heel area features a luxurious gold button with the initials “MC” on the left foot and “TX” on the right, shining over the rest of the layers. The touch of gold matches another key detail we see in this version. The laces have been covered with a protruding layer with a golden zipper joining two different fabrics and giving an even grander appearance to the shape. The Air midsole with rubber finish features green stitching detail and ensures the comfort you need in your everyday life, with premium cushioning and durability to achieve the perfect balance.
