Nike And Travis Scott Teamed Up To Design A Special Air Jordan IV
Nike and Travis Scott are giving the city of Houston a huge shoutout with its latest Air Jordan IV.
The Texan rapper worked with Nike’s Jordan Brand to put together an impressive-looking tribute to Houston with the Air Jordan 4 Retro Cactus Jack.
Realized date of Air Jordan IV:
Nike announced the shoe on Friday,9th June giving us a first look at a collaboration between the rapper and the shoe giant.
Scott’s fashion sense has been noted elsewhere, as he helped design shirts for the Houston Rockets earlier in the season, But the Nike Air Jordan IV Designs are not Rockets inspired as much as taking a page from Scott’s hometown itself.
Multiplatinum recording artist Travis Scott honors his Houston roots with his first Jordan Brand collaboration release: The Air Jordan IV Travis Scott.
Scott’s Jordans looks to emulate the Houston Oilers color palate, with the colorway featuring a University Blue, Black, Bleu Carolina, and Noir design.
This shoe uses a smooth suede upper and a University Blue, Black, Bleu Carolina and Noir colorway inspired by his favorite pro football team from when he was a kid.
Scott’s Cactus Jack label brand shows up on the left heel and right insole as well, giving the Jordan 4 a bit of a personal touch.
It’s a good-looking Jordan, even if you’re not a Travis Scott fan or have no ties to Houston. The Jordan IV is one of the more iconic retros on the market and there’s plenty to work with as far as design quirks here.
The shoe is set to drop on June 9 at some Jordan Brand retail stores and online. No official price was given just yet, but there should be plenty of interest in this colorway in Scott’s hometown.
include Cactus Jack, his record label, branding on the left heel and right insole and a reverse Travis Scott tag on the inner left tongue to nod to original AJ IV details.
