Ever since 2019 Travis Scott has been the main celebrity ambassador for Nike and Jordan Brand. Ever since the original Travis Scott collaboration with the Air Jordan 1, Travis has had several Jordan and Nike collaborations with shoes and apparel. However, after the AstroWorld concert incident Nike has canceled the release of the Travis Scott Air Max 1 and have not rescheduled the release since. This week Jordan brand announced a new collaboration with DJ Khaled. Dj Khaled is not a new face for Jordan brand but he has never had his own line of products that released to the public. The line includes 4 different colors of the Air Jordan 5 as well as a full line of apparel. When I first saw him post pictures of the shoes I assumed it was something gifted to him by Jordan Brand as we saw with the “We the Best” Jordan 3’s. Now that we saw a whole commercial promoting the collaboration it is for sure a release to the public.
The shoes come in 4 different color ways, including a purple, blue, grey, and salmon color. It has not been confirmed exactly how these will release, but it has been confirmed that it will be multiple releases. I would not be shocked if each pair will be exclusive to a city or region. Other shoes in the past have released with 4 colors usually one will be North America exclusive, Asia exclusive, Europe exclusive, and then one limited to a city of friends and family. One thing we can know for sure is that these will not be easy to get and will likely fetch a ridiculously high resell value.
One thought on “Is nike replacing travis scott?”
Honestly, the colorways are cool but I am not a huge fan of the “We the best” on the heel. I’m sure people will eat these up though.
