With all of the success that Travis Scott has had in his dealings with Nike and Jordan Brand thus far, he’s perhaps gotten the most attention from social media feeds for diving deep into Nike Skateboarding’s vast archive of Dunks for personal wear. So an eventual collaboration with the category always felt like just a matter of time, and if the rumor mill proves to be correct, that time is now.
In a short film and video released Friday night for Scott’s collective JACKBOYS, several frames capture the rapper wearing a pair of Nike SB Dunk Lows believed to be an upcoming collab. While clear images have not yet surfaced, the shoe in the video bears a mix of light and darker panels, patterned side panels and a contrasting sole. The shoe in question was also spotted on Scott’s feet in an image shared on his Instagram feed last night.
For the past two years, Scott has become arguably the preeminent sneaker collaborator in the industry, taking two spots on our Top 10 collaborations list for 2019. The Dunk collab hasn’t been confirmed by Scott or Nike, but some leaker accounts on social media have pegged the drop for 2020. His next release will likely be a unique take on the Air Max 270.
More on what will surely become one of 2020’s most anticipated sneaker releases as new details surface.
