Aside from fashion designers, Nike has had major success collaborating with both Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar, which both released their latest model during the month of November 2019.
Travis Scott’s Nike Air Force 1 pays homage to the community that helped cultivate his hustle and the creativity inspired by his trips to Astroworld. The shoe is a patchwork of elements, reflecting things from his upbringing—like the durability of traditional work clothing, natural tones associated with being outdoors, and the surreal vibes of Astroworld.
Kendrick’s Nike React Element 55 pays homage to his rap alter-ego Kung Fu Kenny with a split marble graphic on the upper inspired by yin and yang.
