Following the tragedy that was Astroworld Festival 2021, the Travis Scott x NIKE, Inc. partnership’s future was up-in-the-air – at least from the outside looking in. The Oregon-headquartered company took to its Nike SNKRS app to share that it’d be postponing the Air Max 1 collaborations it had prepped for the end of the year, with La Flame’s Air Trainer 1 propositions suffering the same fate – that was, until recently.
Ahead of a rumored drop on May 27th, the Travis Scott Air Trainer 1 has appeared via official images in a “Grey Haze/Olive Aura/Canvas” colorway. One of at least two takes from the Houston-native on Tinker Hatfield’s iconic 35-year-old design, the upcoming sneakers delivers an experimental onto the cross-training model. Traditional leather is replaced with rugged corduroy and ribbed mesh, with the former covering the majority of Scott’s latest Nike collaboration. Perforate suede makes up the tongue, and blends in with its direct surrounding’s “Grey Haze” makeup. Laces, quarter panels, lockdown straps at the vamp and accenting details across the midsole deviate in a slight yellow tone that both nods to the past, while tapping into the desert color palette that’ve appeared on past Cactus Jack projects. A “Chlorophyll”-reminiscent hue animates Scott-specific branding throughout the upper. Lastly, the Air Trainer 1‘s makeover by the 31-year-old features stash pockets behind the tongue and at the spine, as well as a detachable weather-resistant shroud.
According to industry rumors, the shoes are set to drop via TravisScott.com today, May 20th. No firm Nike SNKRS launch details have been disclosed, but a release for Scott’s “Grey Haze” pair is rumored for Friday, May 27th. As you wait for confirmation from any of the parties involved, check out official images of Cactus Jack’s offering ahead.
