Editor’s Notes: If you thought the Travis Scott x Nike train had come to a standstill, you thought wrong. Release hiatus or not, La Flame’s fans will always be ready and waiting to see what silhouettes and colorways are dripped-fed through the Swoosh pipeline next.
There’s been plenty to be desired throughout the pair’s ongoing partnership, ranging from flagship silhouettes like the Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 1, Air Max 1, Air Jordan 7, Air Force 1, and SB Dunk Low to slightly more niche releases like the Air Trainer 1 and Air Max 270.
It’s a stacked arsenal that varies greatly in terms of finishing; some are heavy pattern works that focus on fabrications for elevation, while others are mostly simplistic color (and Swoosh) flips.
Although it’s difficult to say which silhouette or colorway is a unanimous favorite across the artist’s fanbase, it’s a fair assumption that the Air Jordan 1 is one of its leaders. With bases covered alongside Fragment, the sneaker has been given a pretty significant boost; what’s more, the Low (which, at general release level, is somewhat overlooked) has become a staple of Travis’ collabs.
For the latest iteration of the Air Jordan 1 Low, palette work is dialed back to present a blank yet effective canvas. Dubbed “Phantom” for obvious reasons, the silhouette comes decked out in what looks like black suede, with white contrast stitching giving life to the blank slate.
The finishing touches arrive at the rear, where the right shoe bares the traditional AJ wings logo while the left bears an embroidered bee; a shoutout to Travis’ daughter Stormi.
