Nike Will Delay The Release Of Travis Scott’s Shoe Collab

Nike is delaying the release of a shoe collaboration with Travis Scott following the Astroworld tragedy.

“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 in a statement on Monday.

The shoes were supposed to drop on December 16, since the delay announcement, there has yet to be an official new release date. 

Lawsuits are piling up against Scott, his label and festival organizers over the incident that left many people dead, and hundreds injured after a crowd surge.

A nine-year-old boy named Ezra Blount became the tenth person to die on Sunday from injuries related to the Astroworld stampede. Blount suffered brain, liver and kidney trauma and his father filed a $1 million lawsuit against the rapper and concert organizers. 

“I mean this notion that Travis had the ability to stop the concert is ludicrous,” said Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a spokesperson for Scott and former Baltimore mayor, last week. “They have a 59-page operations plan, and it clearly says the only two people that have the authority to stop the concert were the executive producer and the concert producer.”

Scott has said that he is “horrified” by what happened at his event in a series of Instagram videos and pledged to help the victim’s families. 

Nike and Scott began their collaboration with the release of his first Air Force 1 design in 2017.  Some of their past partnerships include the Air Jordan 33, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 6 and the SB dunk.

However, for those that do enjoy Gunna’s music, he has delivered once again with one of, if not, his strongest projects with DS4EVER.

    Why We Have to Stop Equating Album Sales to Quality

    In the few years I’ve been on this earth there are some things that will always get on my nerves. One of these things, and the topic of this article, is the idea that an album selling a high amount must mean that the album is objectively good. I’ve heard plenty of times before, if go into the comment section of a post that is asking if a certain Drake album is better than another rapper’s, you’ll see a legion of Drake fans saying he sold more so ofc Drake’s is better. I’m here to say that line of thinking is completely wrong.
