Travis Scott and Nike‘s new Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack” is set to debut this weekend and ahead of its highly-anticipated arrival, HYPEBEAST brings you a close-up look at its patchwork styling. Unlike his previous duo of tonal AF1 collaborations, La Flame’s latest effort is rife with color and texture, presenting a bold look that’s inspired by rugged workwear garments and his hometown of Houston, Texas.

The attention to detail is evident on each and every patch. Jumping from corduroy to canvas and camouflage print, the upper presents a rugged mix of earthy hues contrasted by Cactus Jack branding and a crackling print on the midfoot and towards the heel. Shaggy suedes appear on the mudguards and eyestays, while a supple leather hits the toebox. The workwear inspiration is taken even further by the embellishments, with a removable two-tone lace shroud secured by a heavy-gauge zipper and a heel snap bringing elements of customization to the table.


Down below, lime green stitching on the white midsole provides an energetic punch of contrast with a classic gum outsole to complete the look. The shoes are also accompanied by a special yellow and blue box, with a translucent window showcasing even more Cactus Jack motifs. This marks Scott’s 4th Nike/Jordan Brand footwear collaboration in 2019 —- following an Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 1 Low and Air Jordan 6 -— and furthers his case for the title of “most influential collaborator of the year.”

The Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 “Cactus Jack” will release on Nike SNKRS November 16 for $160 USD.
