Despite receiving some backlash for performing during halftime of Super Bowl LIII and not rejecting the offer in support of blackballed free agent Colin Kaepernick, Travis Scott took the stage alongside Maroon 5 for a brief medley Sunday night.
As many sneakerheads expected, Scott used his massive stage to debut a new project with Jordan Brand—the previously rumored "Medium Olive" Air Jordan 6 Retro. The pair was previewed by rayscorruptedmind ahead of the performance.
In addition to being styled in olive, the shoe features what appears to be a snap pocket along the lateral ankle for storing "items." Scott's 'Cactus Jack' logo adorns the heels.
To the disappointment of many, unlike last year's "Tinker" Air Jordan 3 Retro for performer Justin Timberlake, there was no shock drop of Scott's Jordan 6, or even his upcoming Air Jordan 1, which was worn by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
As of now, the "Cactus Jack" Jordan 6 is expected to release in full family sizing this spring/summer. No other details have been leaked or announced at this time, but we'll continue to follow the story as it develops.
