First dropped in extremely limited quantities on February 10, during Travis Scott’s Grammys performance, followed by a re-release via the rapper’s social media on April 30, the hotly anticipated Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 “Cactus Jack” had its general release yesterday on the Nike SNKRS app.
To say there was a lot of hype around the drop would be an understatement. Ahead of yesterday’s release, sneakerheads scared of taking a third L were already parting with over $700 to secure the kicks at StockX.
Unfortunately, things did not go smoothly for those waiting on the general release, with many customers receiving payment processing error messages as they frantically place orders before the shoes went out of stock. A combination of bugs, bots, and a 20-minute delay from the original start time all contributed to a frustrating Saturday for many.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the realest reactions from Twitter following yesterday’s fraught drop.
