The Nike Air Force 1 Travis Scott is offered in men's sizing. Women can also enjoy this kick by purchasing 1.5 sizes down their regular fit for a more secure and cozy stride. Example, if a lady's size in women's is 7, she is advised to grab 5.5 in men's range for a better fit.

Meanwhile, this kick as the conventional lace-up fastening system with tonal flat laces to deliver personalized fit. Both collar and the tongue are well-padded to provide comfort and support, just like any other basketball-inspired sneakers.

The low-top Nike Air Force 1 Travis Scott features bits and pieces of surprising elements that excite its wearers and its onlookers. It is designed with a low-key look but unique upper while staying true to the timeless AF1 features and revamped with fresh and subtle elements.

Travis and Nike highlight the removable shiny Swoosh that can be switched with two provided alternative Swoosh designs. The lace bling showcases the signature grill of Travis and Velcro embellishment on the tongue to add fascinating details contrasted with a clean red insole.

Many love styling this model with easy ensembles to give a high spot to this modernized classic kick. Few gents were spotted strutting the AF1 Travis Scott with baggy jeans, oversized hoodies, accessorized with flashy bling for an authentic hip-hop look. Meanwhile, some style this with skinnies, joggers, or rolled-up trousers paired with simple upper to give this kick a clear, plain view.

Considered one of the most creative collaborations of the Air Force 1, the Nike Air Force 1 Travis Scott showcases few elements to embody Scott's energized side on stage. This kick features interchangeable Swoosh logo, the smoke-to-flame design, and a large chrome Swoosh. Also, this collab displays the striking Travis' grills as the lace locks and the giant Cactus Jack patches on its fastening area.

To add, this model faultlessly echoed Scott's personality by adding various layers of colors, when viewed at different angles. At first glance, this pair presents a subtle colorway but when on stage, this kick shines and reflects from its multi-colored reflective details. Another striking feature is the upside-down 'Nike Air' on its heel tab to deliver a distinctive touch.

Nike unveiled its iconic Air Force 1 silhouette in 1982 to pay homage to the presidential plane of the United States. The brand used the 'Air in the Box' slogan during the launching of the AF1 that displays the Air technology to provide support on the heel and superb cushioning.

Air Force 1 was designed by Bruce Kilgore and took inspiration from the hiking cleat's silhouette. This kick boasts its ripple pattern pivot points on its outsole that suits the hard courts and slanted shaft for better flexibility.

In 1984, Nike discontinued the production of Air Force 1 but returned to the market after two years of hiatus. Its comeback in the sneakers domain was a big hit, and since then, Nike has been able to introduce almost 2000 variations of the Air Force 1.

Travis Scott, a Texas-born popular hip-hop artist, unveiled his first collaboration with the Swoosh using the AF1 silhouette. The Nike Air Force 1 Travis Scott echoes his 'acid of rap' status by launching a design with a canvas upper with several reflective details hidden throughout the upper to depict his 'psychedelic' performance on stage.
