When the Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low "Cactus Jack" dropped at the end of last month, it quickly rose to holy grail status for many sneakerheads. Regarded as his hottest Swoosh collaboration yet, fans praised the shoe's unique design and colourway - but that's not what it was originally meant to look like, not according to La Flame himself anyway.
Taking to Instagram, the original Dunk Low sample looks more-or-less like the release version, but with a few notable differences. First of all, the bandana print has been fully removed, and in its place is an elephant pattern that you'd probably recognise from his latest Nike Air Force 1 collab. You'll also spot Cyrillic script at the ankle as well as the rope laces that we got in the release pair.
What's also worth mentioning is that there is no removable upper, so this was obviously added at a later date. The outsole has also been lightened considerably probably to complement the rest of the earthy palette.
