Model: Air Jordan VI
Release Date: TBA
Editor's Notes: Travis Scott's ongoing relationship with Nike has kept us locked into raffles and release rumors for the best part of four years. The Cactus Jack imprint has found its way to some of the Swoosh's biggest and best silhouettes, including but not limited to the Air Jordan 4, Air Force 1, and Air Jordan 1.
While we eagerly await closer looks at the remaining colorways of the five-piece collaborative Air Max 1, the rumor mill is churning once again as @sneakerjamz_new shares images of what appears to be an updated take on the AJ6. Should this culminate in an official release, this would mark La Flame's third take on the sixth generation of the Air Jordan, after his "Medium Olive" and "British Khaki" iterations.
Next up is a tonal shift that utilizes a powdery blue suede across the full length of the upper, with contrasting hits of a darker hue filling the textile portion of the tongue. The color scheme appears to be an ode to the NFL's Tennessee Titans, who previously played in Scott's Houston home as the Houston Oilers.
A detail that has become a mainstay of Cactus Jack VI's is the dual storage straps that sit at either side of the heel, one of which features a zip while the second opts for popper closure. The finishing touches arrive in the form of the iconic "Infrared" coloring, which fills the branding hits at the tongue and heel, while the part-friendly-part-sinister Cactus Jack logo hides at the midfoot.
If previous releases like the fragment x Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 High and Low are anything to go by, getting your hands on these won't prove an easy task. While we wait for official details, we're left wondering what else the duo could be cooking up in secret.
