The consecration: Nike X Travis Scott
What could be more beautiful for a sneaker fan turned designer than to collaborate with Jordan?

The same year, Nike invited different artists to create their nike Air Force 1 pair to mark the model's 35th anniversary. Although artists like Don C and Errolson Hugh created their own pair, it was Travis Scott and Virgil Abloh that attracted all the attention. On the strength of this success, Travis Scott persevered and signed his first single pair with the Travis Scott X Air Jordan 4, several colors will be released thereafter.
