Travis Scott teases another new Nike sneaker, an Air Trainer 1 mid

With more sneaker collaborations than songs this year, Travis Scott could be changing careers. Just days before the release of his Nike x Fragment Design Air Jordan 1 Low, Scott teased another Nike sneaker collaboration, stepping out in an unreleased Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid model marked with his signature reverse Swoosh.

Channeling Scott’s love for brown – a color that dressed his “Mocha” Jordan 1 Retro, “British Khaki” Jordan 6, custom Lamborghini Urus and the brown Batman suit collaboration – the new sneakers feature different shades of tan and chestnut. . A translucent brown outsole and dark brown overlays stand out against a beige upper with light brown accents, while Scott’s inverted Swoosh matches the pink eyelets and rear heel branding, which appears to display the rapper’s nickname ” Cactus Jack”.

Occasional advertising — Much like fellow rapper Kanye West, Scott likes to tease his upcoming collabs through a classic celebrity custom: paparazzi snaps. He previewed his upcoming Cactus Jack Air Max 1 sneakers wearing them casually in New York, while his previous Fragment Design Air Jordan Low was spotted by dads seven months before its official announcement. If the paparazzi follow the rapper everywhere, it makes sense that he uses the images as free publicity.

True to all aspects of his brand, Scott was seen wearing his unreleased Air Trainer 1 Mids in New York City as he walked into a luxury vintage store. Photos of Pap show Travis casually styling his new kicks: the musician teamed his brown sneakers with matching brown socks, black sweat shorts, a (presumably vintage) graphic long sleeve and a brown baseball cap.

Retro Trends — Scott wore a similar outfit while launching his multiple Cactus Jack Air Max 1 shoes, which are slated to arrive this winter. Available in brown, black, lavender, yellow and light gray versions, the rugged trainers are inspired by the desert and on-trend workwear designs, taking on a boot-like look reminiscent of Nike’s own ACG utility line.

However, as ’90s trends reappear, Scott has shifted his influence on his upcoming Air Trainer 1 Mid. Known as the “The Swiss army knife of performance shoes” the training sneaker ruled the sports of the 90s and later 2000s as Nike released a series of revivals. With few releases today, the retro silhouette is the perfect exclusive to receive a Scott makeover – and the hype that comes with it. Just as the rapper made Nike’s Dunk sneaker nearly impossible to reach, his influence could quickly make the Air Trainer 1 Mid the brand’s next high-end model.

Deposit to be determined — There’s no official word on whether Nike plans to release Travis’ Air Trainer 1 Mid – it could still be a one-off designed for the favorite (or at least most active) collaborator. of the brand. Still, Scott rarely leaves his fans wanting more, and he’s not one to lose profits. We’ll probably see these sneakers again on foot, maybe even in a different color.
