When Travis Scott first announced his fragment x Air Jordan 1 collab, fans all over the world went in a frenzy to try to secure a pair of the highly coveted sneakers.

Over the weekend, a video of a fan trying to buy the shoes off of the rapper’s feet immediately garnered a lot of attention. During a basketball tournament in West Orange High School in West Orange, New Jersey, hosted by NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving, Scott turned up in a pair of his then-unreleased fragment x Air Jordan 1 High sneakers. A fan with a keen eye immediately took the opportunity to try to purchase the pair from the hip-hop superstar.

With what looked like $500 USD in hand, the fan tried to secure a pair for himself, begging Travis to sell him the pair. Travis seemed to be flattered and put his hands together, humbled by the offer. Though the fan was persistent, Travis was too, continually signaling that he was not planning on selling the kicks off his feet.

The Travis Scott x fragment x Air Jordan High 1 Lows have only recently been released and have already proved to be in high demand. In order to ensure that fans have a fair chance at getting the shoes via raffle, Cactus Jack recently had to delete over three million bot entries for the shoe. Check out the video here for the full exchange between the fan and Travis.
