Usually each week I put together a Rock, Stock or Flip column with the hottest drops to pick up that week. However, this week we’re going to just stick to the most hyped sneaker of the year – the Travis Scott x fragment design x Air Jordan 1.
Following the release of the high-tops at the end of July, the Low version will now release in way larger numbers. Channeling the same white, black, blue and cream colorway, the Low rocks a black leather overlay that contrasts the white body and military blue heel. The aged midsole is something that is trending hard in the sneaker community and the collaborators take advantage of that with a sail-colored midsole and matching laces and backwards Swoosh.
While the highs have a Velcro stash pocket on the fragment branded tongue, these do not. However, no one will miss the Cactus Jack and Wings logos on the heel done in white or the embroidered Cactus Jack face and fragment design thunderbolt on the heel in black.
It goes without saying that the hype of these sneakers and their limited availability will make them a great flip. But honestly, this color combination is better than the first – more wearable and truly paying homage to an OG sample. In order to get your hands on this pair you’ll have to sign up for a ton of raffles and pray. SNKRS app has these loaded up as well but we all know that’ll be the ultimate L come Friday the 13th (release day).
Release Date: August 13, 2021
Resell pre-release: $1,010 – $1,620
