    Travis Scott again nods towards his upbringing in Houston. A big fan of Houston sports, it is only natural that his Nike silhouette's would incorporate some elements of that love and passion. The Travis Scott AJ4 is dressed in blue suede, a colourway inspired by the Houston Oilers - now known as the Tennessee Titans - his favourite NFL team. The left heel counter is finished in leather and features the Cactus Jack logo with paint speckles. The signature Air bubble is featured on the rear of the white midsole, whilst being complemented by a black outsole. The heel and interior is dressed in a contrasting red.

    Silhouette Explored — History

    The Air Jordan IV was released as the follow up silhouette to the Air Jordan III in 1989, the silhouette was designed by Tinker Hatfield and built on the foundation of the Air Jordan III by making it more streamlined. The AJ4 was worn throughout the '88-89 season as the Bulls reached their first Eastern Conference Finals, but would ultimately lose to Isiah Thomas' Detroit Pistons. The design was the first to incorporate a series of aesthetic improvements such as urethane-coated mesh caging on the sidewalls and the lace panel to elevate breathability, in addition to exposed triangular ankle straps that housed a distinctive 3-by-3 square set eyelet lacing system. The lacing system opened up customisation options through the various permutations that were now on offer. The upper was segmented into 3 sections, with 2 panels above the midsole that housed a visible Air unit in the heel. The tongue tab would introuduce the Jumpman logo, whilst the heel counter would feature Nike Air branding, the heel collar incorporated a large tab in order to make breaking into the silhouette easy as possible. The Bred colourway introduced a softer leather across the upper, when it was introduced it was dressed in Durabuck.

    Silhouette Explored — History

    During the 90's the shoe would become a favourite of a number of TV personalities such as Will Smith (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and Dwayne Wayne (A Different World), in addition to making a marquee appearance in Spike Lee's film, Do The Right Thing. Of Jordan's many iconic moments, none come bigger than the Shot, in game 5 of the EC First Round, he hit a clutch series winning-shot over Craig Ehlo, whilst wearing the Jordan IV Bred. The Jordan IV was the first Jordan silhouette to be modified by an external brand or fashion house, with Jordan teaming up with UNDFTD on a military inspired deep green edition in 2005.
