Hate it or love it, Travis Scott collaborations are all the rage, and La Flame has teamed up with French fashion house Dior on a co-designed Spring/Summer ’22 Collection with Dior Creative Director Kim Jones.
The sneaker is heavily influenced by the chunky skate shoe of the 90s, most notably the eS Barbier. The sneaker collection has a handful of colorways, all featuring a mesh upper with a large suede overlay that surrounds the sneaker from the toebox to the heel. An additional ollie guard overlay sits on the toecap, and a Piss Drunx-inspired “CD” logo is seen on the tongue, heel, and eye stay. A Cactus Jack-inspired Dior logo is also utilized, which can be seen on the tag on the lateral heel as well as debossed on the heel tab.
Get ready because the Travis Scott x Dior B713 is finally dropping on July 13, 2022. The retail price is unknown. To purchase, visit Dior.com and Dior flagship locations. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
