Nike Postpones Travis Scott Air Max 1 Release After Astroworld TragedyNovember 15, 2021
Travis Scott‘s latest Nike collab won’t be hitting the shelves anytime soon — the Swoosh has decided to postpone the “Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack” release due to the Astroworld festival tragedy.
The Baroque Brown kicks were slated to go live on December 16 at 7 AM … but just minutes ago, Nike announced it will not go through with the drop.
“Out of respect for everyone impacted by the tragic events at the Astroworld Festival, we are postponing the launch of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack,” Nike said Monday.
The decision comes as 9-year-old Ezra Blount became the 10th concertgoer to lose their life as a result of the chaos at Astroworld.
As we previously reported, the Houston Rockets also scrapped a promotional event featuring Scott last week — replacing “Travis Scott Night” with a moment of silence for the victims.
On top of that, Fortnite elected to remove the Travis Scott emote from its game.
No word on when — or if — the shoes will eventually go on sale, but they’re guaranteed to by highly coveted nonetheless. Travis’ Air Jordan 1s are currently on resale sites for north of $1,500.
