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.

Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Nike Air Force 1‘s 40th anniversary is fast-approaching.

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.
