More than a million fans have reportedly signed up for a sweepstakes in hopes of getting Travis Scott’s newest Nike Air sneakers.
According to TMZ, the rapper teamed up with shoe giant Nike to design an entire collection. Released this Friday.
Scott included a variety of things like shoes and clothing items.
Although fans can’t wait to own Scott’s new collection, they couldn’t help but be interested in the rapper’s collaboration with Nike.
Here is everything you need to know.
Travis Scott X Nike new collaboration
Travis Scott slowly began to return to the public eye after the Astroworld tragedy.
In December last year, a crowd crush occurred at one of Scott’s Houston-based music concerts. In the incident, 10 people lost their lives and hundreds of injured were taken to the hospital.
Scott suffered as several sponsors canceled his deal after the deadly tragedy. Later, he was removed from various brand collaborations. Regardless, their upcoming collaboration has been put on hold due to their ongoing lawsuits and allegations surrounding the rapper.
As a result, Nike has also discontinued the release of the Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1 and the Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 1. Fans soon began to wonder if the sneakers could see the light of day.
Fans’ concerns were finally answered on May 20 when Scott and Nike resumed their collaboration mission. On Friday, they launched the Nike Air Trainer 1 on Cactus Jack’s official website. They are available in two colors, including Gray Haze and Chocolate.
Loyal fans of Scott flocked to La Flame’s website to fill out sweepstakes entries in hopes of securing a special pair of Travis Scott x Nike Air Trainer 1.
But TMZ reports that the sought-after shoes had more than a million fans entered the sweepstakes entries in just 30 minutes.
Nike obviously didn’t produce that many sneakers, so many fans will be leaving empty-handed.
Scott got a little emotional with the fan’s reaction. She shared ‘I love you guys with high emotions’ on her Instagram story.
Meanwhile, Scott is gearing up to release his upcoming studio album UTOPIA.
After the Astroworld tragedy, Scott went unnoticed. However, she made her debut on the red carpet event at the Billboard Music Awards 2022, held in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15.
