Travis Scott doesn't play any games, especially when it comes to building hype for yet another Nike collaboration. This time around, we're getting our closest look yet at a tonal take on the highly anticipated Cactus Jack Air Max 1.
While initial looks at the silhouette came courtesy of an eagle-eyed fan attending a pop-up event, the latest tease comes via trusted sneaker news source @zsneakerheadz. The latest image showcases the second of five upcoming colorways, following the aforementioned on-foot look at the "Baroque Brown" finish.
Although official information is yet to be provided regarding the latest pair to make an appearance, this makeup is said to be the "Wheat" colorway, albeit without visible hits of "Chile Red." This Air Max 1 appears to adopt a more toned-down palette than what we've become accustomed to from La Flame, with a wheat hue filling the upper while brown contrasts hit the outsole, laces, and heel. With a rumored Holiday 2021 release, the hype train is certainly out of the station.
The first colorway to be teased in all of its paneled glory was the "Baroque Brown" iteration. Dressed in licks of brown that some have come to call "Travis Scott Brown" due to the rapper's frequent indulgence of the color, its wheat and red accents set the tone for the multi-color finishes yet to come.
Five pairs are rumored to be dropping, though we’ve only been treated to teasers of two of the colorways. Mockups provided by reputable sneaker insider @py_rates offer insight into what we can expect from the "Off Noir," "Saturn Gold," and "Grey Haze" pairs.
As expected, Scott’s signature reverse Swoosh appears at the midfoot regions, while Cactus Jack branding adorns the tongues and heels. Meanwhile, leather and suede panels wrap around the upper, atop a breathable mesh base.
While we continue to wait for an official release date, learn more about Travis' sneaker collab history. Another colorway has also surfaced, featuring a teal upper accented by an all-black midsole, and finished off with a grey-ish Swoosh. No other information has been shared regarding its release, but we're keeping our eyes peeled for more.
