Bots Are At It Again For The Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low
Travis Scott, Jordan Brand, and Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fragment Design are back with the release of the Travis Scott X Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low. The new Air Jordan 1 Low is set to follow in the footsteps of its high-top counterpart with a color combination of Miliary Blue, white, black, and an off-white cream color that Nike lists as “Sail”.
However, they do differ from the Highs with a “Black Toe” color block. The signature backwards Swoosh is in the Sail color and so are the laces. The tongues have the original Nike Air branding and are paired with a Fragment design tab, while the heels include Cactus Jack branding on the left and Jordan’s wings logo and the Fragment bolt emblem on the right.
Earlier this morning, the Travis Scott X Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low was released on the Nike’s SNKRS app and also through Travis Scott’s online store as a raffle. Unfortunately for the common consumer, it was nearly impossible to cop since only a few thousand pairs were produced. Without question, the shoes immediately sold out. Later in the day there was a message posted on the Cactus Jack Discord channel that stated at least 3 million bot entries were detected and filtered out.
Aside to the release of the Travis Scott X Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low, there was also merch similar to the release of the Travis Scott X Fragment Air Jordan 1 High. The hoodie and t-shirt both contain a graphic of Michael Jordan printed with Cactus Jack and Fragment logo tagged on and around the superstar athlete. The sweat shorts also show the logos but do not have “His Airness”.
Time and time again, it definitely hurts taking a L with each SNKRS release. It doesn’t help that just last month the news broke out that bots submitted 32,000 raffle entries for the Travis Scott X Fragment Air Jordan 1 High on Travis Scott’s online store. I guess we just have to appreciate the fact that we can even come across these opportunities. At the end of the day, it’s just for a pair of shoes, albeit a pair of $150 shoes that are currently fetching for $1,600 on platforms like StockX.
