Travis out here blessing Khaled.
Sneakerheads lost their collective minds last Sunday during Travis Scott's Grammy performance. This is because La Flame dropped his "Cactus Jack" Air Jordan 1 on the SNKRS app. The shoe sold out instantly and is now going for $1500 on Stock X. It was a rough go for fans who wanted a crack at these coveted shoes. There is still going to be a more general in April, but it would have been nice to get the shoes early since there is no guarantee you'll be able to get them later on.
At this point, we've seen Travis himself, as well as Michael Jordan, wearing the kicks and now we're going to see DJ Khaled wearing them soon as well. The father of Asahd took to Instagram to show off his new pair which was gifted to him by Travis himself.
One thing that is interesting about these is how the box is actually brown instead of the typical black. The wrapping around the shoes also features some of the Cactus Jack branding that is so typical of Travis Scott collabs.
While we didn't get our hands on these, it's still pretty to cool to see these in real life. It's just getting us even more excited for the actual release in a couple of months from now.
