Model: Air Jordan 4 “Cactus Jack”
Key Features: A light blue suede upper with black and red detailing on the lace cages, laces, tongue, heel tab, and lining. The midsole is white, and features the model’s signature air bubble at the heel, further complimented by a black outsole. Jumpman branding is seen on the tongue, while Cactus Jack branding is evident around the heel counter.
Release Date: The rumored release date of June 23 seems to be holding strong
Editor’s Notes: Following weeks of teasers and leaks, the release of a Travis Scott x Nike Air Jordan 4 now seems beyond any doubt. After a close friend of Scott and RSVP Gallery owner, Easy Otabor, teased the shoes himself on IG, official images soon came to light. Now Justin Timberlake, who has been promoting Jordan Brand recently, has received his personal pair, as seen in the Instagram video below.
The official images above give us our closest, most detailed look yet at what promises to be another hit release from the Jordan Brand.
Cactus Jack seemingly refers to Scott’s record label of the same name and the blue, red, and black colorway looks to be a nod to the NFL’s Houston Oilers, now known as the Tennessee Titans. The Oilers played in Houston between 1960 and 1996, before relocating to Tennessee. The Tennessee Oilers then changed their name to the Titans in 1999 to coincide with the opening of their new stadium.
Travis Scott is a well-known fan of Houston sports, most recently celebrating the Astro’s World Series win and being seen courtside at various Houston Rockets NBA games. It would make sense for Scott to give a nod toward a former Houston sports franchise.
In addition to providing information about the possible inspiration behind the project, leaker accounts also claim the pair will release on June 23, which following the release of these new images seems like an even more realistic number.
Stay posted for more information as it arrives, including official release date, and where you will be able to pick up a pair for yourself.
