Let’s get that straight: I’m not a fan of Travis Scott, nor have I been the biggest fan of the constant sneakers he’s brought out in partnership with Nike in recent years (or their inflated resale price). . But its PlayStation Dunk Lows? you are extremely Well.
We actually First seen last yearwhen only five couples were released, but this week … 24 more couples were sent to the rapper’s “friends and family” (sneaker code for “people somehow connected to him and a big one too.” Have social media reach for advert ising “) purposes”).
And this time we got to see the box the shoes came in and even the box is good, which goes back to the design features of the PlayStation 1’s original packaging.
Like I said last year, me love those PlayStation dunks. I think the colors are great and the PlayStation branding is perfect, just enough to set it apart from a regular couple (and serve PlayStation fans) without looking over the top and looking like a kid’s sneaker. The “PlayStation” in Japanese above the sole is also a nice touch.
So it’s a damn shame that this, like every other Travis Scott x Nike release, is kept artificially tight to the point where it is unknown if they’ll ever make it to a general retail drop (which also means that the very nice box, if you ever did it could become an exclusive for friends and family). Not that it mattered because even if they did, they would be snapped up by resellers so quickly that few of us could ever afford a pair anyway.
So here I have a humble request on record that Nike and Sony just release a pair of these without the Travis Scott branding. Just a few PlayStation dunks, the same colors, the same PlayStation collaboration, just … maybe giving us all a slightly better chance of getting our hands on them than having PlayStation and Travis Scott on the same shoe together.
And before you say that is unlikely, it is not completely out of the way! After all, Nike basically did something similar last year when they released a pair of Travis Scott AJ1s in white / brown / black in 2019, then turned around and let in. fall very similar colourway a year later, only this time without the Travis Scott reverse swoosh.
