Editor's Notes: Travis Scott doesn't play any games, especially when it comes to building hype for yet another Nike collaboration. After a long series of leaks and rumors, the first two colorways of what is expected to be a pack of five, have been officially unveiled.
Initial looks at the silhouette came courtesy of an eagle-eyed fan attending a pop-up event, followed by additional teases from the trusted sneaker news source @zsneakerheadz.
Following the initial reveal of the "Baroque Brown" iteration, a second look at a more tonal makeup was revealed. We can now confirm that this Air Max 1 is officially called "Saturn Gold."
As per Nike, the sneakers take inspiration from the ACG Pocket Knife. References to the 90s utilitarian classic arrive via a drawstring Gillie lacing system, custom nubuck and mesh-patterned overlays. At the tongue, you'll find a rubberized Cactus Jack tongue logo, while a custom CACT.US CORP outsole brings the shoe together.
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," "Wheat," 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.
Another colorway has also surfaced, featuring a teal upper accented by an all-black midsole, and finished off with a grey-ish Swoosh. While we continue to wait for an official release date on the remaining pairs, learn more about Travis' sneaker collab history.
