After months of leaks and rumors of a footwear collab, rapper Travis Scott officially confirmed on Instagram today that he’s teaming up with Nike on some new designs.
“WORK-IN-PROGRESS,” the Houston native announced in the caption. He also tagged #af1, hinting that he’s designing a new iteration of the brand’s signature Air Force 1 sneaker, pictured below.
Scott’s connections to the brand run deep. He previously starred in Nike campaign for its VaporMax sneaker in May. Plus, over the summer, he was seen teasing an unreleased Air Force 1 model (the “Cactus Jack,” which features interchangeable swooshes) on social media. The rapper didn’t officially announce what the upcoming collab entails yet, but according to leaked info, this sneaker model is one of them. This also appears to be the same shoe in his announcement post.
Scott is one of the latest celebs to collaborate with Nike, including fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar, who worked on a Cortez sneaker with the sportswear brand. This also isn’t his first time teaming up with a major label. Earlier this year, he released a capsule collection with Helmut Lang inspired by his Texan roots.
