Another collab between Nike and La Flame is finally complete. The Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack” came out on Friday and it was, as expected, gone within the first seconds. Most of those who had been long awaiting its release probably took an L. But, ironically, those who took the hardest hit were Travis Scott’s biggest fans.
Many loyal fans are simply dissatisfied with the turnout of this new sneaker collab. This is because a large part of the community actually wants to wear the sneakers and not resell them for more money, which is the growing trend these days. A Travis Scott fan wrote this to Scott’s management team and Nike and asked them to find a way to get the sneakers into the hands of “real fans”:
“They double or triple the price, sell them and keep the money they earned. This process prevents real fans from getting shoes at every drop.”
Probably what gave the fan the impetus to write that letter was the AJ6 “Cactus Jack” As many of us know, a shoe size of 42 costs around 1220 € at KLEKT. Even the kid sizes are just too damn expensive.
Then, things became a lot juicier! Travis Scott was later reported to personally comment by saying, “Your voice won’t go unheard.”
Will Travis Scott find another way to get more pairs available to deserving fans?
So far, Scott has no influence on how the sneakers are sold. We can only hope it will change in the future. Don’t miss the next news and get the Grailify app. We will always keep you up to date.
