Undoubtedly one of sneaker culture’s finest, Travis Scott has effortlessly taken 2021 by storm, offering collaborations with PlayStation and even the legendary Hiroshi Fujiwara. And soon — likely before the year’s end — the artist will drop not just one but multiple iterations of his Air Max 1.
The classic sees a treatment not too unlike the releases before it. The Swoosh, for example, is flipped like La Flame’s beloved Air Jordan 1, though it’s given a much slimmer, less pronounced shape. Elsewhere, the construction features a number of mountaineering-inspired elements, such as the patterned webbing and rope laces. It’s in palette that the pair sets itself apart, subverting the earth tones of its predecessors for a much brighter yellow arrangement. Accents of light blue, then, play up the branding along the tongue, rounding out a colorway far louder than its “Wheat” dubbing leads you to believe.
