Spanning a variety of iconic silhouettes, there’s something about Travis Scott collaborations that keep the world spinning. Ever since the launch of the first Travis Scott Nike Air Force 1, new sneakers have come out of the woodwork to bless the community. A general DIY vibe gives it the perfect look, elevating the classic sneaker vibe with Travis’ personalization. Here are some of the best Travis Scott sneakers.
9. Air Jordan 1 ‘Fragment’
A triple collaboration between Jordan Brand, Travis Scott and Fragment is something that is pretty rare to see. While most modern sneakerheads are not familiar with Fragment, this brand by Hiroshi Fujiwara was once at the forefront of Hypebeast culture.
The resume of this sneaker is pretty strong, but considering the weight behind its construction, it still feels a bit too plain in the grand scheme of things. They look great, no doubt, but it doesn’t really push any discussions for any reason at all. They have an amazing silhouette in the Jordan I, and the backward Swoosh is present, but there’s really nothing special going on here.
8. Travis Scott x Air Jordan VI Retro
This collab is one of the more rounded designs in a pair of Travis Scott Jordans. Everything feels like it’s in place, probably because of the military-inspired design. The olive green suede is smooth to the touch, and the presence of its bright orange accents gives it a vibrant feel. It is a sneaker that’s easy on the eyes, but there’s still a lot to appreciate.
Much of that is also thanks to the detailed silhouette of Jordan 6’s. The cherry on top of this sneaker has to be the cargo pocket at the angle. This might be the spot if you’ve got any magic herbs for an emergency!
7. Nike Dunk Low ‘PlayStation’
Every gamer has a special spot in their heart for nostalgia. Those early years were some of the best moments we ever experienced, so seeing a callback to the original PlayStation 1 era in a pair of dunks is like the best of both worlds. It’s a nerdy and dope thing to have. The sad part is that most people will only ever see them in photos. Five pairs were made, only available to winners from a raffle on Scott’s website. We’d be happy to snag a pair if there is ever a more widespread release in the works!
6. Air Jordan IV ‘Cactus Jack’
The first official pair of Air Jordans from Travis Scott, the legacy of this shoe can’t go unnoticed. They were originally released back in 2018, becoming an instant hit among fans of the Houston Native and the greater streetwear community.
The colour palette is connected to his hometown and the now-defunct Houston Oilers franchise from the NFL. They are still quite impressive a few years on, but definitely not as popular as they were after the initial hype they received.
5. Air Jordan 1 Low Collab
The Travis Scott Air Jordan lows feel like a fever dream. The fanfare surrounding them is nothing short of amazing, yet nobody could have predicted its success. Prior to this shoe’s popularity, many people were a bit unsettled about where the Jordan 1 lows stood on their sneaker preferences. It’s a design that took some time to grow in the greater sneaker community and this collab definitely helped bring it to a positive light.
The laid-back presentation really sells it with a mellow look. Scott’s classic Dark Mocha helps, especially when combined with the black nubuck material rather than a white leather panel. Instead of a small version of a high-top shoe, these give off a unique identity that can only be captured on lows.
4. Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Cactus Jack’
Debuting back in February 2019, this pair is Travis Scott’s third collab with the Air Forces. It uses the classic Air Force One silhouette as a base, but they are also quite different from what you’d expect from a pair. The combination of colours and references gives it a very hands-on look. This is something that works quite well visually, especially when you take into account how much detail that is present.
Most people originally thought they were an exclusive pair owned by Travis. Perhaps the “prototype” look to its design contributed to that. We feel like they are kind of underrated in the Nike-Travis lineup, but these are a mean pair to own in a collection.
3. Nike SB Dunk Low
The impact Travis had on Dunks is something that isn’t appreciated enough. Giving these sneakers some respect in the community wasn’t thanks to him alone, but he did a great job with this collab. They have a similar design approach to his Cactus Jack Air Force 1s. True to Scott’s design philosophies, they feature different materials and a darker/brown-ish hue. The plaid pattern combined with the tan nubuck and a paisley fabric makes everything feel complete. The collab was only exclusively available in skate shops and select boutiques. It’s not something you’ll come across often, and this adds an extra layer of value to them.
2. Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Sail’
While we wanted to include the Air Force 1 Low ‘White’, there’s something about the Sail that feels better from a design and practicality POV. It still sports the features we liked from the white pair, including some interchangeable Swooshes, Cactus Jack patches covering the laces and chrome grills. However, the colour is less demanding and warmer, easier to clean, and generally better. It’s also helpful that they don’t seem to have a weird obsession with the resale market compared to the predecessor.
1. Air Jordan 1 High
The Air Jordan I High from Travis Scott has to be one of the best sneaker collaborations we’ve seen. The sheer popularity of this pair is down to Scott’s loyal fanbase and the success of his Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour from late 2018. The sneakers have the Dark Mocha colour giving them an unrecognizable and distinct Travis Scott identity. The giant backward swoosh is never getting old, and with five sets of laces included, there’s a good chance you won’t get bored while customizing them.
