Although the collaborative sneakers retailed for $250 USD, they are now fetching for an average price of $1,050 USD on resell markets such as StockX. Even the toddler sizing is going for $180 USD on average off a retail price of $60 USD.
To share his frustration one Travis Scott fan, @astro.travy, took to Instagram to air out his grievances about the situation on resell, and addressed the post to both Scott and Nike. In it he touched upon helping “real fans” to be able to purchase the sneakers at retail and how the only people that get their hands on a pair are “resellers using devices to cheat the system.”
The post even reached Travis Scott himself, who commented back “Ur voice won’t go unheard.” At the moment, Travis Scott is one of Jordan’s most high-profile collaborators, and the duo’s next release is slated to be a Texas-themed Air Force 1.
Though Scott has responded to the message, it is unclear if both Scott and Jordan Brand will actively work on changing the system.
