One of the most anticipated sneaker releases of the month of November is making its way to retailers next week with the arrival of the Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low Cactus Jack. Everything that Travis Scott touches turns into gold and this Air Force 1 will be no different.
Taking on a unique look that takes on a patchwork and rugged appearance, this collaborative Air Force 1 features camouflage, corduroy, duck canvas, flannel, leather, suede and wool, all sturdy materials associated with hard-wearing, tough products. Mixed together, these form the primary canvas for the Scott’s latest collaboration, an ode to Travis Scott’s Texas roots that encapsulates everything buzzing in contemporary streetwear.
The design blends the fabrics with burlap accents, a reference to farm product and a metonym for resilience and hard work. There’s an underlying characterization of hustle — keeping nose to grindstone — imbued in the shoe too. Scott’s personal Cactus Jack logos from tour merchandise meld with the textiles to form a biographical tableau.
Much of Scott’s youth was spent in Missouri City, Texas, and the small town is called out on the snaps at the shoe’s heel. The snaps are among several details that channel the styling of traditional work coats, along with the corduroy collar, heavy brass zippers and removable lace cover.
These new detailed images also give us a look at the special box/packaging that will accompany the shoe which features Travis’ Cactus Jack logo in blue, windows on the side of the box, and “KAKTYC A*EK Records” branding. Get a good look a the shoe above and look for a release to go down on November 16th for $160.
