It's hard to believe that the Travis Scott x Nike/Air Jordan partnership has only been around since 2017. With so many classics it seems like they’ve been doing things for way longer than 6 years. Together the two have taken on a number of silhouettes and put out close to 20 total releases. That’s only counting the ones that have actually been released, we all know that some of their best work was reserved for friends, family and folklore.
With the upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG SP Travis Scott Olive said to be the last Air Jordan 1 that Cactus Jack will work on, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane and rank the best offerings from Travis Scott and Nike. Our staff has compiled a list of the Top 10 Travis Scott sneaker collaborations of all-time.
- Nike Air Max 1 Travis Scott Cactus Jack Baroque Brown: When La Flame took on the Air Max 1 there were some mixed reactions. However , the earth tones and mixed materials made the super easy to wear.
- Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG SP Travis Scott Black Phantom: Perhaps the simplest and cleanest offering from the entire collection. The premium black materials are contrasted with the bright white stitching for a rather elegant offering.
- Jordan 6 Retro Travis Scott British Khaki: The tan color in the suede presentation is just a smooth combination for the upper. Combine that with the translucent highlights and side-stash-pocket make this shoe one of the classics.
- Air Jordan 4 Retro Travis Scott Cactus Jack: The Cactus Jack heel tab alone is enough to land this shoe on the list. Layer in the university blue packaging and waxed black laces are just icing on the cake.
- Nike Air Force 1 Low Travis Scott Cactus Jack: Canvas, ripstop, suede, nubuck, and corduroy somehow come together to make a surprisingly clean shoe. Not to mention that the zipper closing lace cover gives them a coat of armor.
- Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG SP Travis Scott Mocha: The Jordan 1 Low may be the hallmark of the Sicko Mode singers collection and the Mocha is one of his finest designs. The signature earthy brown uppers with alternating with black panels and and that reversed swoosh make this crepe one for the ages.
- Nike SB Dunk Low Travis Scott: The controlled chaos of this shoe makes it a real gem. From the paisley navy blue bandana overlay, to the flannel shirt paneled medials, to the chunky rope-style laces the shoe is truly built for the streets.
- Nike Air Force 1 Low Travis Scott (AF100): This one is just too easy on the eyes. Travis took on the classic AF1 and remixed it with a canvas upper, gum bottom, dubraes, lace covers and handful of interchangeable swooshes.
- Air Jordan 1 Retro Low OG SP Fragment x Travis Scott: The Fragment Lows are really more of a #1A than #2. With an impossibly perfect balance of blue hues and the sail colored features on all three levels of the shoe the powerhouse design trio created a timeless cut with these.
- Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG SP Travis Scott Mocha: Sometimes you don’t need that much to make something legendary. Just the right shade of brown, a vintage treatment on themidsole, and flipping the Nike swoosh on it’s ear creates the most classic colorway of the most classic silhouette.
Now, it should be said that the Top 5 really could go any way you want. All of these shoes are capable of taking the top slot from one another but there’s one shoe that stands tall above them all. It couldn’t be included in the actual list because no one really knows if it actually exists. It’s only been seen in the wild a small handful of times. Most notably when Travis caught Klay Thompson breaking his neck at a Golden State Warriors game.
That’s right, the GOAT all Travis Scott collabs is the Air Jordan 4 Travis Scott Olive. The oily taupe upper, black cages, olive and infrared heel tabs are the stuff of myth. The tortoise shell lace holders are a feature that’s never been seen before. Since there’s never been a recorded sale, you can’t even call it a grail. It’s more like the Loch Ness Monster or Big Foot. You’ve heard about it forever, but barely anyone can claim to have actually laid eyes on them. Should the Travis Scott Olive 4 ever release we may move it to the actual list. Until then, it will remain an urban legend lurking in the shadows.
