Travis Scott x Air Max 1; Drop Or Cop? | HypeDrop

Aug 16, 2021

Is it the Travis Scott collab to top all Travis Scott collabs? Here's our thoughts on the upcoming Air Max 1 collection!

Fresh off the high of his Fragment x Jordan drop, Travis Scott has shared a sneak peak of his next project - an upcoming Air Max 1 collaboration! Although the partnership was teased at the beginning of this year, La Flame's snap features a colourway of the sneaker we're yet to see, reportedly called 'Saturn Gold'. And, as expected, the sneakerverse went nuts for it!

From Jordan to Dunk, Travis Scott's collabs have always been an instant sell-out. And judging by the hype that's already building, the Air Max 1 is set to have the same impact. Let's take a closer look at the rumoured 5 colourways to drop!

The collaboration remains true to Tinker Hatfield's 1987 Air Max 1 silhouette. Coated in a variation of different materials, including suede and synthetics, the sneaker features the famous backwards Swoosh, synonymous with La Flame, and Cactus Jack branding on the heel. Beneath the foot, a rubber midsole plays host to the classic Nike Air Max unit, for optimum comfort.

Colours range from earthy tones to bold citrus spikes. And, according to py_rates_, we can expect; Baroque Brown, Off Noir, Saturn Gold, Grey Haze and Wheat. If we had to pick a favourite? It's a cross between Baroque Brown, the first rumoured colourway to hit the sneakerverse, and Saturn Gold.

The limited collection is expected to sell out fast! It's classic enough for everyday wear, with the heat of Travis Scott behind it. Our verdict? It's definitely a cop!

The sneakers are set to release on this Holiday season for $160 each.
