The latest collaboration between Travis Scott and Jordan hit stores mere days ago, and almost instantly flew off shelves, as is to be expected from a partnership between the Jumpman and one of the biggest musicians in the world right now.
Although the shoes retailed for $250 USD, they are now fetching over triple that price on after market channels. One Travis Scott fan account on Instagram aired his grievances in a post addressed to Travis Scott management and Nike, pleading with them to help “real fans” get their hands on the sneakers for retail.
The post even reached Travis Scott himself, who commented back “Ur voice won’t go unheard.” At the moment, Travis Scott is one of Jordan’s most high-profile collaborators, and the duo’s next release is slated to be a Texas-themed Air Force 1.
It remains unclear whether Nike and Scott are actively working on ways to stifle resellers or get sneakers into the hands of fans, but Scott is at least seems open to constructive criticizm.
