First Look: Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low

After appearing in his JACKBOYS music video only a few days ago, it’s no surprise that the first leak of Travis Scott‘s forthcoming Nike SB Dunk Low has started rising to the surface, likely simmering in the pot for a long, long time, possibly ever since La Flame got into the silhouette himself months ago. And while he still shows off coveted pairs and drives up the resale, he’s going on to disrupt the scene even further in 2020 with a collaborative take that somewhat mirrors the themes of his recently dropped Air Force 1, though with a few cracks that thrust it far into its own realm. 
Along the profile’s overlays, a striking banana print, which is said to tear off in the vein of past notables, is found in dark navy with contrast embellishments all throughout; the base, in contrast, stays to embody the rapper’s penchant for earth tones as it almost entirely dyes in a light tan of smooth leathers, the same material as the darkened swoosh. The backdrop for the ends latter piece, however, bears plaid patterns only sparingly. Typical “Cactus Jack” branding lines the patch of the fat tongue with literal rope laces looping through the unit for further character inline with the artist’s personal aesthetic.
