From surprise SNKRS app drops to first being seen on the “Coffee Bean” artist more than a year ago, Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 finally heads down the path to its GR. And over on StockX, the market has been buzzing as 1,741 sales have amassed an average price of $1,135 USD for the sneakers, signifying its stature as a sought-after iteration.
The color story lends itself to being more on the earthy spectrum where brown nubuck alongside white leather collides with contrasting black accents. Branding for the signature shoe is a hallmark and was sure to be implemented, such as with the retro Nike Air tongue tags. However, new elements referencing Scott himself can be witnessed on the heel — with the embossed Cactus Jack emblem — and on the mismatched insoles. The asymmetrical, reversed Swoosh on the medial provides the biggest deviation from the source material, while a hidden stash pocket in the ankle provides a bit of a tongue-in-cheek detail.
