Both of Travis Scott's "Cactus Jack" and Virgil Abloh's reimagined "Chicago" Air Jordan 1s have been some of the most sought after sneaker releases in recent memory, so it comes as no surprise that competing brands like Steve Madden are looking to capitalize on the hype surrounding the red-hot designs as evident on its latest Malone sneaker.
The overall look of this copycat model appears to be influenced by Abloh's collaborative Jordan 1 with a similar reconstructed leather upper in both the "Chicago" and "Mocha Brown" color blocking. Instead of the traditional Swoosh branding on the sides, it has been replaced with a star logo. Even the tongue appears to be inspired by Abloh's version of the Jordan 1, with the woven tag relocated onto the side.
Readers that are interested can find these Malone sneakers at their local Steve Madden store and on stevemadden.com now for $140.95.
