As of now, Travis Scott’s partnership with Nike hasn’t produced any Jordan sneaker collaborations, but recent hints suggest that may not be the case for long.
Today, April 12, sneaker news outlet account @zSneakerheadz tweeted out a picture of the heel of an Air Jordan 4 sneaker with a Cactus Jack logo. Cactus Jack, along with being the name of a WWE wrestler, is Travis Scott’s moniker as well as the name of his own label, Cactus Jack Records. See the tweet for yourself below.

Travis Scott’s partnership with Nike first started back in March 2016, when he was introduced as a model for NikeLab’s Summer of Sport collection, alongside Fetty Wap. The NikeLab collection featured daring and unconventional designs for various athletic leisure pieces.
Travis popped up again in mid-2017 as the face of Nike’s Air VaporMax campaign. In March, Travis Scott performed for Nike in back-to-back concerts in New York and Los Angeles in the same day to celebrate Air Max Day, which falls on March 26. Travis was the face of the VaporMax’s “Day to Night” collection, which was released June 1.
At the close of 2017, Nike released the Air Force 1 Travis Scott, Scott’s first Nike sneaker. Here’s part of what Nike’s site had to say about the design:
When Travis Scott was asked to create his own AF-100 design, one of the first things he expressed was wanting to incorporate his status as the ‘acid of rap.’ This idea immediately led the design team to think of ways to take the classic and trip it out. ‘I’m more of like a psychedelic. More so like a spaz out,’ Travis reveals. ‘I only go that crazy at shows. That’s really what it is. It’s not like I’m breaking shit in the house all day.’”
Even though little is known about the speculated Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4s, KicksOnFire.com has noted that reports a speculated release date sometime in June 2018.
This isn’t the first rumor of a Travis Scott Jordan sneaker. Back in February, Kylie Jenner was seen wearing an unreleased colorway of Air Jordan 4s. Considering that Travis and Kylie are in a relationship, many speculated that the shoe’s design may have been influenced by Travis Scott. Still, they look nothing like the Cactus Jack shoes that have been leaked. See her in the shoes for yourself in the post below. Stay tuned for more Travis Scott updates.
