Travis Scott’s First Original Nike Sneaker Could Be Releasing Soon

More from Footwear News

Following the launch of Travis Scott‘s first signature shoe from Jordan Brand, the Jordan CJ1 T-Rexx (fka as the Jumpman Jack), official images have been revealed for the rapper’s counterpart at Nike.

The Nike Sharkidon will be Scott’s first original silhouette from Nike and has been revealed in a cream on white colorway called “Sail.” Noted sneaker Brandon1fan on Twitter, however, has reported that the sneaker will be named the Zoom Field Jaxx. Whatever the shoe’s final name ends up being, it borrows clear design elements from the Spiridon running shoe and Shark football cleat.

Scott has worn the Sharkidon on a number of occasions since last year, initially leading to conflation of his Nike and Jordan shoes, but the official images give the best look at the sneaker’s details. Branding is kept to a minimum compared to the CJ1 T-Rexx, as the only external mark for Scott is his embroidered Cactus Jack logo on the heel with a Swoosh for its mouth. The Sharkidon goes without the backwards Swoosh that’s been a signature to the musician’s many collaborations with Jordan Brand and Nike. Nike’s logo also appears as usual on the tongue tag and sock liner, while a small shark teeth-like pattern is molded onto the midsole on the lateral toe.

Similar to the CJ1 T-Rexx, a velcro strap wraps above midfoot. The all-cream upper is rendered with suede overlays and leather overlays including the toe box and collar. A white midsole then sits atop a faint brown outsole with a healthy amount of tread.

Release details for Travis Scott’s Nike Sharkidon “Cream” have yet to be confirmed, but the shoe is expected to drop before the end of the year. Footwear News will keep you abreast of any updates.
