Travis Scott is going to be collaborating with Jordan Brand once again to design one of next year‘s Air Jordan releases 2019. Ever since Drake allegedly parted ways with Jordan Brand, Travis Scott has become the face and leading representative of the brand from the world of hip hop. Travis Scott’s association with Jordan Brand was actually quite abrupt and it can all be traced back to when he unveiled the Jordan Trunner LX “Cactus Jack” on his Instagram profile (@travisscott) in July 2017. Travis Scott has been avidly collaborating with Jordan Brand in 2018 and it seems that he will continue doing so next year as well.
The Air Jordan 6 colorway initially believed to be inspired by Jimmy Butler will join this month’s Air Jordan releases 2018 before Christmas. Two months ago, the Air Jordan 6 was a part of Jordan Brand’s “Tinker Series” of Air Jordan Retro releases. This particular colorway drew inspiration from the Air Trainer SC II High that Tinker Hatfield designed back in 1991. It was dressed up in a combination of “White/Infrared 23–Neutral Grey–Obsidian.” This Air Jordan 6 “Tinker” made its retail debut on October 6th, 2018 at a price of $190. The upcoming Air Jordan 6 colorway you see here is dubbed “Diffused Blue.”
Aleali May‘s latest sneaker colorway, designed in collaboration with Jordan Brand, will be among next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Instead of playing with Barbies, Aleali May was more interested in Air Jordan sneakers when growing up during in early ‘90s in South Central Los Angeles. She was in elementary school when she was introduced to sneaker culture after receiving an Air Jordan 12 from her uncle. As a designer, influencer, model and stylist, she is credited for ushering the age of women’s exclusive sneakers. This year, Aleali also became the first female to collaborate with Jordan Brand and design her own colorway of the iconic Air Jordan 1.
The “Flint” theme returns on one of next year‘s Air Jordan releases 2019. The Air Jordan 6 receives the “Flint” treatment in 2019. In case you don’t know and are wondering, flint happens to be a hard and tough, grey-colored sedimentary rock. It mostly consists of chert or pure silica and is a form/variety of quartz. This is actually not the first time that Jordan Brand has drawn inspiration from the color and texture of this rock for one of their sneaker colorways. In fact, “Flint” is one of Jordan Brand’s prevailing colorways that has previously appeared on a number of models other than the Air Jordan 6.
