It’s a common opinion that Travis Scott has become one of the most influential Nike collaborators of recent times and the duo’s Air Jordan 1 iterations are often strong contenders for shoe of the year.
More recently, Travis takes on the Air Jordan 1 silhouette for the second time, only this time around he’s not using pre-release hype surrounding the colourway. Titled “Black Phantom” – this new Air Jordan 1 Low is arguably Travis’ most sleek and smartest looking trainer yet.
The most obvious detail in a Travis Scott collaboration is of course the reverse Nike Swoosh, which has become a noticeable symbol within streetwear culture.
The other details in the new collaborative trainers can only be properly appreciated when seen up close. A deep black is presented throughout its entirety, with different layers of paneling that are only made visible thanks to a white contrast stitching. Take a proper look below:
A set of black waxed laces help compliment the premium feel of the upper, which is also reinforced though the mixture of soft suede that underlays the nappy suede panels.
Dual-branding can be seen at the heel, plus an insole print and a subtle vertical “Cactus” logo beneath the classic Nike Swoosh.
