Nike’s Travis Scott ‘British Khaki’ Jordan 6 sneaker drops this week

This week will be a special one for the “Travis Scott saved my life” crowd, as the rapper is set to release his second Air Jordan 6. The cargo-pocketed sneaker is dropping in a new “British Khaki” color scheme, an update to the original “Olive” version released in 2019.

While largely running it back, there are a few alterations to set apart the new sneaker from its predecessor. Scott’s “Jackboys” logo now appears on the medial side’s midsole, while the tongue, heel pull, and lace toggle now appear in a semi-translucent rubber and plastic.

Still, all that matters in the mindless sneaker landscape of today is this — it’s Travis Scott’s, and it’ll be all but impossible to secure. Regardless of who’s actually in love with the sneaker for the sneaker, it’ll be the talk of the week before it sells out overwhelmingly quick and sneakerheads eventually move on to the next “must-cop.” Resellers who treat the Air Jordan 6 as just another asset will secure another lucrative payday while taking advantage of the sad saps who weren’t so lucky, and “real fans” will be left mostly empty-handed.

This discouraging routine could be avoided if Nike simply made enough to fulfill demand — but we all know that’ll never happen.

Releasing alongside the Air Jordan 6 will be a dedicated capsule that’ll be only slightly less in demand. An embroidered hoodie, jumbled T-shirt, cargo vest, and sweatpants will all release in the same “British Khaki” — which will have a bunch of hypebeasts looking like soft-handed descendants of those who fought in the North African campaign of World War 2.

Between the vest and the kicks, wearers will have no shortage of storage options. So what’ll be kept in all these pockets? Probably Juul pods and the keys to an apartment where a Chicken Nugget pillow is considered acceptable decor.

Scott’s new Air Jordan 6 is slated to release this Friday, April 30, through retailers including Oneness and Feature. Nike has yet to confirm it for the SNKRS app, but it should launch there at some point soon, if not the same day. Travis Scott, meanwhile, will be raffling off the chance to purchase a pair on his online shop.

Pray to the lord of rage and you may just land yourself a pair. The SNKRS app and various other raffles will be your trenches.

Official Images Of The Air Jordan 6 “Electric Green”

First rumored in mid-May 2020, the Air Jordan 6 “Electric Green” has recently emerged in unofficial images ahead of its supposed Summer 2021 release date.

Ostensibly inspired by the University of Oregon Ducks athletic program, the forthcoming retro features a mostly “Black” ensemble complemented by eye-catching “Electric Green” detailing throughout the upper and sole unit. Lace toggles and Jumpman branding on the tongue indulge in the vibrant tone, as does the sportscar-inspired tab on the heel. Underfoot, the nubuck-heavy Jordans opt for a predominantly-two-tone sole unit: As with the original Jordan 6 from 1991, the “Black”-colored midsole features detailing above the semi-translucent outsole and heel Airbag dipped in a stark contrasting color. Branding on the tread also indulges in the pair’s titular “Electric Green” tone. Enjoy a first-look at the statement-making shoes here below, and expect a Nike SNKRS launch during the summer.

‘Day of the Dead’ Air Jordan 6 Lows Releasing This October

Day of the Dead, or Día de Muertos, references a two-day Mexican holiday during which both life and death are celebrated. Over the years, sneaker companies such as Nike have observed Day of the Dead with special sneaker releases, most notably of the Nike SB Dunk Low in 2006. Last year, Jordan Brand was added to the mix, as it rolled out a vibrantly colored Air Jordan 1 Mid as part of the festivities. It appears the brand’s involvement may be a staple moving forward, as Soleheatonfeet reports that another holiday-themed Air Jordan is on the way this year.

The expected “Day of the Dead” model is the Air Jordan 6 Low, which, according to the mock-up, will be white-based with hits of black, yellow and orange. No other details, such as special markings, have been confirmed at this time.

Expect an October 2021 release for a price of $190. Stick with Sole Collector for more information and a first look in the coming months.

WHERE TO BUY THE AIR JORDAN 6 “CARMINE”

With a weaving history of brand ties as well as a rich past on the hardwood court, too, the Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” is as fun to talk about as it is to look at and wear, and with a Retro update that dropped on February, 13 at StockX, it’s probably a good time to revise some of the facts.

Originally released in 1991, the OG Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” was one of the last Jordan silhouettes to carry distinctive signs of the Nike brand. After 1991, Jordan brand began to distance itself from the Swoosh’s signature logos and features in favor of a more independent identity. However, the Air Jordan 6 still features the Nike air bubble to the heel and, returning to its original form since its 1991 birth, the 2021 Retro design features the Nike Air logo to the heel where a Jumpman logo appeared after the last 2014 Retro of the shoe.

The Air Jordan 6 has a fairly strong history on-court as well. The 1990-1991 season in which Michael Jordan began wearing the silhouette was fruitful, to say the least, with Jordan winning the scoring title, All-NBA and All-Defensive first teams, and also the season MVP award. But, while the Air Jordan 6 saw Mike through the finals against the LA Lakers that year, he didn’t debut the Air Jordan 6 “Carmine” until the season after but don’t worry, the Bulls won the title again that year with MJ taking the Season MVP and Finals MVP awards.

The Air Jordan 6 Retro “Carmine” is a memorable shoe with a history to match, making it the perfect candidate for a Retro rerelease. StockX market data shows the sneaker reached a 52-week high of $666, with a current average selling price of $327. You can grab your certified-authentic pair below now.

Jordan Brand is giving one of Michael Jordan’s signature shoes a new look in July.

The athletic brand confirmed on the Nike SNKRS app that it will deliver the Air Jordan 6 “Gold Hoops” exclusively in women’s sizing next month.

The shoe’s premium tumbled leather upper wears an all-white color scheme and is contrasted by regal gold accents decorating the Jumpman branding embroidered on the heel. Adding to the look light pink hits featured on the tongue and midsole while the look is completed with a milky-white translucent rubber outsole. According to the shoe’s product description, the latest iteration takes inspiration from gold earrings as seen with the interconnected gold hoop details that are attached to the shoe’s tongue.

The Air Jordan 6 Women’s “Gold Hoops” will be released via SNKRS at 10 a.m. ET and at select Jordan Brand retailers on July 1. The shoe will come with a $190 price tag.

The Jordan 6-17-23 Returns In “Carmine”

While the Jordan 6-17-23 doesn’t boast the same popularity as propositions in the mainline Air Jordan series, it delivers a fresh approach to #23’s footwear legacy.

Last seen in 2014, the model’s “Carmine” colorway is set to return soon, with all the original specifications that made it popular among casual and savvy fans alike. As its name suggests, the pair features design cues from the Air Jordan 6 and later models, the former currently celebrating its 30th anniversary and lending the titular tone. The accompanying styles lend their sole unit, tongue and profile cutouts to the experiment of a sneaker.

Could A Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 Houston Oilers Colorway Be In The Works?

Despite making time to sit court-side at an NBA while wearing a Nike SB shoe worth $100,000 USD, Travis Scott is never not working. In addition to (surely) slowly chipping away at his next studio album, “UTOPIA,” the 29-year-old has reportedly been working on an Air Jordan 6 collaboration inspired by the Houston Oilers. A collector-made custom suggests how the final product might look.

Akin to his Air Jordan 4 joint-effort from June 2018, Scott’s next sneaker with Team Jumpman draws its “University Blue/Varsity Red/Black” colorway from a former NFL team (now known as the Tennessee Titans). Premium suede construction covers the majority of the model’s upper, and indulges in an eye-catching light blue. The tongue and utilitarian pouch on the lateral side boast a darker shade of the titular tone, but don’t detract from the shoe’s overall aesthetic. As has become common of La Flame’s Air Jordan collaborations, branding – which includes “NIKE AIR” at the heel – across the retro delivers stark “Varsity Red” contrast presented in fluorescent, “Infrared”-fashion. Cactus Jack iconography makes its way onto the medial midsole, and while not depicted in early leaked images, likely does so on the semi-translucent outsole, too.

Enjoy images of how Scott’s anticipated next Jordan 6 will look here below, and anticipate more Nike SNKRS release details as the year winds down.

UPDATE (06/07/2021):
The images included in this post have been confirmed as those of a custom. Although Scott might be working on a similar colorway, another Houston Oilers-inspired pair is pure speculation at this point. A previous version of this story suggested the sneaker in question was an early, authorized sample by NIKE, Inc.
