Travis Scott and Nike have Twitter in shambles over their latest collaboration.
Today (April 26), the shoe company dropped the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low “Olive” sneaker online. According to Hypebeast, the design is a women’s exclusive release inspired by Scott’s classic Air Jordan 6 unveiled in 2019.
“Expressing a mix of ‘Sail/University Red/Black/Medium Olive,’ the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Olive’ features black suede upper bases accented by off-white leather overlays,” the outlet shared. The sneakers also come with multiple sets of laces and unique packaging marking the partnership. The shoe’s retail price is $150 and is rumored to be the last release in the collaboration series.

Once the shoe became available, sneakerheads flocked onto the internet to get their hands on a pair. While some were lucky, others were not and made it known on social media. One individual went on Twitter and said, “I’ve entered every Nike raffle for each Travis Scott release and still have not even sniffed a w… This is so disheartening.”

Another Twitter user asked what’s the point after entering over 60 raffles without any success. “I entered a combined 68 different raffles for the Lost and Founds, Reimagined 3’s, and Travis Scott Olives, plus six direct SNKRS and Cactus Jack website entries,” the user explained. “No EA on any platform, no wins on raffles, no wins direct entries… seriously, what’s the point?”

Outside of the fashion industry, Scott is well-known for his rapping ability. In a previous report, Rolling Loud Miami announced the 31-year-old artist as one of three headliners for its upcoming music festival. Check out more Twitter users’ reactions to Scott’s raffle below:
