The release day for the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low is finally upon us.
The shoe was first teased by Scott in his JACKBOYS music video, as well as on his Instagram feed and story several times over the past few months.
Scott is a self-proclaimed fan of Nike SBs, having worn some of the rarest Dunk lows such as the Nike SB Dunk Low “Freddy Kruger” and the “Paris” samples in the past. With his strong ties to Nike, it was only a matter of time before the brand’s most marketable collaborator got to design his own pair.
Why the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low matters
A lot has been made of the Nike SB Dunk revival over the past 18 months, though it’s only been recently that the silhouette has gained a foothold among sneakerheads again. Once one of the most popular types of sneakers in the mid ’00s, the value and popularity of the sneaker dropped sharply as other styles such as basketball sneakers and runners saw an uptick in hype.
Now, though, spearheaded by Travis Scott’s love for the silhouette, the Nike SB Dunk is well and truly back. Like his Jordan Brand collaborations, the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk will likely be one of the hardest cops of the year.
