Travis Scott reminded us once again that his three-year-old daughter, Stormi, has a better sneaker collection – and a lot bigger – than us peasants. But in doing so, the rapper apparently confirmed the upcoming release of his Air Jordan 6 collaboration. Scott took to Instagram to show off his birthday present to Stormi: a miniature pair of Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “British Khaki” and a just as small matching hoodie. Now the question is, when can we wear ours?
We can’t say for sure, and sadly that applies to other Travis Scott sneaker collaborations – which we’re sure Stormi has several already. The rapper kicked off the year by teasing an all-new Air Jordan 1 Low, which featured the signature Swoosh inside out that adorned his Jordan 1 “Mocha” and PlayStation Dunk. A high-end version surfaced later, and it was revealed that a third collaborator – Fragment Design – had worked alongside Nike and Scott to create the sneakers from the start. Since then we’ve only seen paparazzi snaps and mockups, but Scott’s teasing Instagram posts imply the shoes will drop momentarily.
Stormi’s Seeding – As seen on Stormi’s new kicks, the Air Jordan 6 features a predominantly dark beige upper, with neon orange accents on the heel of the shoe and a Jumpman pattern. Bright orange also adorns the heel Nike branding and Scott’s signature Cactus Jack logo. More of the rapper’s branding appears on the outsole, which features a smiley Cactus Jack face and Scott’s name alongside another orange Jumpman logo.
It looks like the sneakers come with luxury packaging, as seen in Scott’s Instagram post. A special branded shoebox, as well as a Jumpman branded dust bag, are included in the package – assuming this was not an addition for Stormi’s exclusive seeding.
While it’s hard for us to admit it, it looks like a three-year-old has more details about these sneakers than we do. Scott hasn’t announced a release date, or what the Air Jordan 6 will cost consumers. Rumors speculate that the shoes will cost $ 250, which seems too expensive until you factor in the resale value of the coveted collaboration.
Anticipation is built – Despite the rapper’s silence, we expect the sneakers to drop soon – perhaps as the weather improves and our shoes are safe from weather damage. Sadly, the highly anticipated pair could fall in the very spot where sneakerheads’ dreams go to die – the SNKRS platform – and worse yet, Nike could put the AJ6 into a raffle to keep up with the demand. Really, we’ve never been so jealous of a three year old and his sneakers.
