Nike has postponed the release of its Air Max shoe collaboration with Travis Scott, following the tragedy at his Astroworld Festival.

The sporting apparel giant has now stated that the planned release of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack, which was set to be made available via the  SNKRS app from December 16, has been postponed.

“Out of respect for everyone impacted by the tragic events at the Astroworld Festival, we are postponing the launch of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack,” Nike said in a statement.


On Nov. 5, at least 10 attendees of the music festival have passed away after a crowd surge toward the stage at the NRG Park stadium in Houston sparked a deadly stampede among the 50,000-strong patrons.

In the aftermath, Scott and the event’s organizers have been hit with several lawsuits. Drake, who had joined fellow rapper Scott onstage as a surprise guest at the event, has also been sued.
