According to TMZ, the rapper teamed up with shoe giant Nike to design an entire collection. It was released this Friday.
Scott has included a variety of things like footwear and clothing.
Although fans are waiting to get their hands on Scott’s new collection, they couldn’t help but be interested in the rapper’s collaboration with Nike.
Here is everything you need to know.
Travis Scott x Nike new collaboration
Travis Scott has begun to gradually return to the public eye after the Astroworld tragedy.
Last year, in December, there was a crowd at one of Scott’s music concerts in Houston. The incident left 10 dead and hundreds of victims were hospitalized.
Scott suffered in the aftermath of the fatal tragedy when several sponsors canceled his deal. Subsequently, he was removed from various brand collaborations. Regardless, his upcoming collaborations have also been put on hold due to his ongoing lawsuits and claims surrounding the rapper.
Consequently, Nike also halted the release of the Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1 and Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1. Fans soon began to wonder if the sneakers would ever see the light of day.
Fan concerns were finally answered on May 20 when Scott and Nike resumed their collaboration duties. On Friday, they released the Nike Air Trainer 1 on the official Cactus Jack website. They are available in two colors including Gray Haze and Chocolate.
Scott’s loyal fans flocked to La Flame’s website to fill out raffle tickets in hopes of scoring an exclusive pair of Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1s.
However, TMZ reported that the coveted shoes attracted more than a million fans who signed up for raffle tickets in just 30 minutes.
Obviously, Nike hadn’t produced that many sneakers, so many of the fans will come back empty-handed.
Scott got a little emotional at the fan’s response. He shared, ‘Emotions high love you boys’, on his Instagram story.
Meanwhile, Scott is preparing to release his next studio album UTOPIA.
After the Astroworld tragedy, Scott kept a low profile. However, he made his first appearance at a red carpet event at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards held this past Sunday, May 15, in Las Vegas.
