This is the summer of Travis Scott. The Houston rapper/producer started off the year with the birth of his first child, then he dropped the year's best Jordan collab in June. Now, in the span of one week, his highly anticipated third album, Astroworld, debuted at number 1 just as the extremely coveted Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Sail" is set to hit the streets. Right now, it's good to be La Flame.
The Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Sail" follows the same template as his all white AF1 collab last fall, with a clean canvas upper with reinforced stitching on top of a tonal midsole and gum rubber outsole. Just as before, the highlight of this release is the multiple removable velcro swooshes, removable snap-on Cactus Jack applique tongue patches and silver lace deubrés inspired by Scott's trademark grill. Red co-branded insoles and inverted Nike Air branding on the tongue tag and heel finish off the details on this portion of the Travis Scott 2018 victory tour.
The Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Sail" releases on Friday, August 10th @ 10:00am. It will only be available via in-store raffle 1106 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia, and an online raffle here. The raffles will close Wednesday, August 8th @ 7:00pm EST. Winners will be notified Friday. Good luck!
