Travis Scott and Nike continue to dominate the world of collaborations with yet another release. After having implemented his creativity for some classic models such as Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1; Jacques Berman Webster II dedicated himself to the new model of Air Max 270 Cactus Trails.
They had been talking about it for some time, and this situation has certainly not helped, but here is Nike’s new project with the rap superstar. The shoe shape is identical. Scott and the Nike team have added a streak on the body, which replaces the dominant Swoosh on the central part of the shoe.
Obviously, no sneakers designed by Travis Scott would be complete without the Cactus Jack brand.
Nike Air Max 270 React feature the Cactus Jack on the insole and on the heel. Cactus Jack also appears on the shoe tongue, in the shape of a cross. His decal with Tavis Scott’s smiley face has a Swoosh instead of a mouth.
The design of the new Nike x Travis Scott Air Max 270 Cactus Trails takes you back in time.
A 90s attitude that through the shades of brown and ACG color pop gives the shoe a vintage apparel. The well-worn look conveys a back-from-the-future sensibility.
The choice of colors is in tune with Scott’s affinity for vintage apparel. Material selection, including a polar fleece collar, further relays an outdoor connection. On the other hand the oxidation of the upper, midsole and Air unit, achieved through a tint Sulphur dye, helps celebrate the beauty of a well-loved object’s patina.
A custom tongue-tab, lace-lock and an extra Swoosh on the toe, are just some of the many details of the shoe.
The Nike x Travis Scott Air Max 270 Cactus Trails will be released May 29, 2020. They can be bought on SNEAKRS and at selected retailers, in adult, preschool and toddler versions.
For the little ones, a version with a unique take on design, characterized by a reverted Swoosh has been created. A first Nike x Travis Scott collaboration just for kids.
In addition, an apparel collection including a hoodie, sweatpants and shirt will also be available. These clothes well express Scott’s search for garments that enclose both the typical comfort of sports garments and functionality.
