Travis Scott is slowly returning to the public eye following the controversy around the tragedy at his Houston-based music festival Astroworld. The incident left 8 dead and hundreds hospitalized. With numerous lawsuits and claims surrounding Travis, Nike decided to halt the release of the Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1 and the Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1, leaving fans to wonder if the shoes would ever be released. These questions were finally answered today as Travis launched a shock drop for both colorways of his Nike Air Trainer 1 on the Cactus Jack website.
According to TMZ, a source close to Travis claims that the raffle entries exceeded more than 1 million within just 30 minutes. This same source also reported that the raffle was armed with anti-bot protection as Travis wanted to make sure that the drawing would be fair and accessible. The sneakers were also released alongside a range of apparel that included tactical vests, pants, jackets, and more. All of the apparel and both colorways of the Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1 are completely sold out on the Cactus Jack website. If you didn’t hit, you still have a chance to cop on the upcoming SNKRS drop on May 27th.
It seems that Nike and Travis have full intentions of moving forward together as the SNKRS app was also updated today with a drop date for the Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1. Check out our Sneaker Release Dates page for more info on that and follow @NiceKicks on Instagram for updates.
