Originally teased by the rapper himself back in May, the “Baroque Brown” offers an earthy palette that’s equal parts Cactus Jack and Nike ACG. Uppers are constructed of a rectangle-patterned “Lemon Drop” mesh, while the shoe’s signature “Baroque Brown” shade is placed on mudguards, collars and heel overlays. A boot-like medium brown is used on the forefoot overlay, midfoot overlay and tongue.
“Chile Red” brings some flair into the mix on the rope laces and top eyestays, while special branding is served up by Scott’s backward Swoosh on the lateral midfoot, pennant-like Nike and Cactus Jack embellishments on the heel and a special tongue badge. Three-tone brown and red fabric strips connect the overlays for a touch of trail style. Down below, brown and cream midsoles surround an opaque Air Max cushioning unit while outsoles present a tire tread-inspired traction pattern and a “Cactus Corporation” detail.
Apart from its color scheme and branded hits, the “Baroque Brown” also features some structural differences from a regular Air Max 1. The most notable of these are its alternate midfoot and forefoot overlays, but the collar appears to be a little thinner and the tongue a little thicker than Tinker Hatfield‘s original design.
A release date for the Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1 “Baroque Brown” has yet to be announced, but it’s likely to hit shelves this holiday season. The MSRP has been speculated to be $160 USD.
