After months of unfettered anticipation, Travis Scott and Nike‘s new Air Force 1Cactus Jack” has been officially announced. Although it’s Scott’s third go-around with the Air Force 1 Low, this new makeup boasts a completely new style and a vastly different inspiration from the rapper’s previous duo of special makeups, serving as a workwear-inspired homage to his Texas roots.

Combining a medley of sturdy, hard-wearing materials — duck canvas, corduroy, flannel, leather, suede, burlap, wool and camouflage — the shoes present a patchwork-style look with a mixture of earthy tones, rough textures, and printed graphics. Of special note is the removable lace cover on each tongue that’s secured with a heavy-gauge brass zipper and the snaps on each heel, which provide a call out to Scott’s childhood home of Missouri City, Texas. Special “Cactus Jack” text and jagged prints appear on the quarter, while a white midsole with lime green contrast stitching and a timeless gum outsole complete the look.

The overall workwear ethos also serves as a dual-pronged nod to Scott’s tireless work ethic, a trait that’s enabled him to stay in a perpetual state of motion both creating music and performing it. He’s played dozens — if not hundreds — of shows during 2019, all while releasing his first #1 debut with Highest In The Room and continuing to push 2018’s Grammy-nominated Astroworld.

Scott’s fourth footwear project of the year after an Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 1 Low and Air Jordan 6, these new Air Force 1s will release in men’s, preschool and infant sizes on November 16 via Nike SNKRS and select global stockists. The retail price for the men’s pair is $160 USD, while the preschool pair is $75 USD and the infants pair is $65 USD.
