Here are some new kicks from Nike that sport some over-the-top aesthetics which you may be interested to know even if you can’t buy them. The first in the list is the Nike Air Force 1 x Cactus Jack, aka Travis Scott Nike sneakers.
Nike Air Force 1 x Cactus Jack ($160) is actually more striking than ridiculous looking. It features a nice mix of camouflage, corduroy, duck canvas, flannel, leather, suede and wool. We especially dig the Burlap accents.
The Burlap accents kind of give the sneakers a very proletariat vibe. Though the price is most certainly anything but proletariat. There is, of course, the American rapper’s Cactus Jack logo, plus cool touches like snaps at shoe’s heel, corduroy collar, heavy brass zippers, and a removable lace cover.
Unfortunately, it appears to be sold out (sorry!).
Next up is the Air Jordan XXXIV “Wrapping Paper” PE which, if you are a fan of NBA, you would have saw Jayson Tatum wearing it during the Boston Celtics’ Christmas Day game against the Toronto Raptors.
As you can see, it indeed has the wrapping paper look. It is bold. It is loud. And it is, TBH, pretty cool. At some point, we even mistaken it for some kind of fun take of an urban camo. Obviously, it is a pair created for Jayson Tatum and not quite something money can buy.
As loud as the Air Jordan XXXIV “Wrapping Paper” PE may look, it is pale in comparison to Odell Beckham Jr.’s Week 16 Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ Uptempo Cleat. How is that so is pretty self-explanatory. Just look at it:
Is it not over-the-top? Yeah. I guess as much. Fans of American Football may have already seen OBJ donning this pair of fuzzy sneakers during the holiday-themed pregame.
Finally, there’s the LEBRON 17 MTAA (More Than An Athlete). It is not as ridiculous in the looks, but for some reasons, managed to induce goosebumps in me. However, that could be just me and so, it is not the reason it is here on this mini list.
The reason this pair of basketball shoe is here is the unique interchangeable tongue guard and the erasable paneled midsole that allows you to write your own personal messages. Two markers are included for this purpose (of writing).
