Months after a green version of Travis Scott’s "AF100" Air Force 1 collaboration surfaced online last year, Nike has confirmed that the pair seen on Scott and his team are customs and are not planned for a wider release.
According to Nike, Travis Scott and his team customized their personal pairs at the RSVP Maker Space event in Chicago by dipping them into green dye. Unfortunately for fans of Scott and his sneaker it isn’t an official colorway and will not be releasing any time soon.
When contacted for comment, our contact at Nike responded: “I confirm that Travis Scott and his team customized their personal pairs at the Maker Space in Chicago. Not to be released in the market at the moment.”
Chicago based street artist Ali 6 (below) posted a picture of a green pair of Nike x Travis Scott AF100 Air Force 1s back in December and wrote in the caption that he was the inspiration behind Scott dying his pair green at the event.
Similarly, a user on Reddit commented that the dye options at the event were gray, teal, red, and pink and that the rapper had to specially request the green dye.
So there you have it, the green version is a custom. While the use of “at the moment” in Nike’s statement leaves the door open for a possible future release, don’t hold your breath.
In other sneaker news, the NYPD halted the NYC release of the Levis x Air Jordan 1 for “safety reasons.”
