Travis Scott’s new Nike Mac Attack are a pleasant surprise that no one expected. A few weeks after Nike announced that it would no longer design Air Jordan 1s with the rapper (the ones that have ended the collection have been the Air Jordan 1 Olive), the author of Astroworld has appeared at the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Miami with these sneakers on his feet.
The 32-year-old rapper took the stage showing off a new pair of Nike Mac Attack. In early March, Nike and Social Status shared a first look at three ripped colorways, reintroducing the coveted 1984 tennis shoe.
It looks like the Houston rapper is also putting his own mark on the Mac Attack silhouette, though it’s unknown if it’s a collaboration set to release later this year.
During the event, Scott performed wearing his Mac Attack for the first time. The sneaker looks in a familiar grey and black color blocking, similar to the original pair. However, it features Travis Scott’s signature upside-down Swoosh instead.
The Swoosh backwards is often used in Scott’s collaborations with Nike and Air Jordan. The sneaker appears to have a mesh and leather construction, as well as a checkerboard label on the tongue. Rounding out the design, the shoe sits atop a white midsole and gray rubber outsole. So far, it is not known if it will feature “Cactus Jack” branding anywhere else on the sneaker.
How much will they cost and when will the Travis Scott x Nike Mac Attack “Light Smoke Grey” be available? #
They will cost approximately 130 dollars, will go on sale at Nike SNKRS and select retailers worldwide.
