Per the official release from Nike, the shoes will include Nike's famous Swoosh logo backward, a hidden heel pocket and some subtle Cactus Jack branding. 

"These Jordan 1s are just a fresher version of my old play shoes," Scott said in the release. "The colors are from tones and textures of what I saw growing up and remind me of my backyard and playing outside." 

Nike will also drop the Air Jordan I High OG Travis Scott apparel collection on the same day the shoes are released at select locations around the world.
