To be honest, I would never wear the Cactus Jack Dunk that Travis Scott designed for Nike. But I'm also old and had to google his name before I knew who he was (thought at first the drummer of Blink182 had designed a shoe). Now I know that he did a collabo with Justin Bieber and is dating Kylie Jenner (well, Wikipedia speaks of a relationship break...), which has even diminished my interest in him. But what the heck, I'm not the target group either. The target group, on the other hand, is going mental. That's why I became aware of the whole thing in the first place. Because skateshops call for respectful behaviour with each other because of the immense rush of sneakerheads, organize security for the in-store drops or just post the stupidest requests on Instagram. And there's a lot of. You wish the energy of the collection-happy sneakers would be put into something meaningful. On the other hand, I make my living reporting on a wooden toy. So who am I to judge?
Anyway, there is now a clip on the shoe that Travis probably didn't film himself, but at least there is Ishod Footage in it, and that's enough for me to see the Nike SB x Travis Scott shoe as a good thing in the end.
