One of the biggest and most anticipated collaborations of the year is the Travis Scott x fragment x Air Jordan 1 High “Military Blue”, which will likely be dropping via SNKRS and selected retailers very soon. As 2021 draws towards its second half, La Flame has already revealed a full collection of sneakers with Dior, and will now be moving on to this major three-way powerhouse team up alongside Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design and the Jordan Brand.

As 2021 draws towards its second half, La Flame has already revealed a full collection of sneakers with Dior, and will now be moving on to this major three-way powerhouse team up alongside Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design and the Jordan Brand. While we have had sneak peeks of these highly coveted kicks, they have now been officially unveiled by Nike for fans to get a closer look at these high tops.

The Travis Scott x fragment x Air Jordan 1 High “Military Blue” is constructed in premium leather that gives the shoes a textured look instead of the usual smooth finish, similar to the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 “Mocha”.

The shoes sport a white base that covers the forefoot, midfoot, and padded nylon tongues - a nod to a similar feature found on the 2014 fragment design x Air Jordan 1 “Royal”. The creamy off white Sail colored midsole is made obvious against the white, with a subtly printed fragment signature coding text printed on the medial side on top of the rubber soles.

The Military Blue pops on the toe boxes, ankle flaps, lower heels and outsoles. Black accents complete the color-blocking on the collar, laces, heels, and the Travis Scott signature backward Swoosh.

Besides the reverse Swoosh logos found on both the lateral sides, the Jordan Wings logo can also be found on the outer side of the shoes. The Cactus Jack head can be found on the left heel, while fragment’s bolt logo goes on the right. A fragment design fabric tag and a Cactus Jack tag can also be found on each side adjacent to the Nike Air tongue tag.
