Dennis Rodman has asked Travis Scott to copy the sneaker look.
At Got Sole’s recent sneaker convention in Chicago earlier this week, the former NBA player, 61, accused the 30-year-old rapper of plagiarizing his reverse Nike swoosh design.
In the sharing clip HipHopDXThe Chicago Bulls legend held on to a pair of Scott’s collaborations with the Air Jordan 1 since 2019, asking him to give him credit for his original design.
“Travis Scott has copied my shoes,” she said in a video addressing the father-of-two, who recently filed a legal petition to change his son’s name with his baby mama Kylie Jenner, 25.
“Come on, Travis,” she continued. “Give me credit, you know?”
Rodman still claims Scott copied his mid-1990s Nike Air Darwin sneaker backwards.
“You copied my shit,” he said in the video.
“This is not new, brother,” he added. “But anyway, congratulations.”
The Astroworld hitmaker has yet to respond to Rodman’s claims.
In 2019, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG sneakers were released in suede and white.
The collaborative shoe featured a reversed Nike swoosh – which also appeared on other shoes in the Travis Scott collection.
Many fans praised the “innovative” design, but Rodman finally decided to speak up.
During his time with the San Antonio Spurs in the early 90s, Rodman modeled the Nike Air Darwin before they were released to the public in 1994.
The sneaker did not bear his name, but many considered it his signature that he played in his first two seasons with the Spurs.
After the release of the record, the record producer has not responded or published a statement.
Around the same time, Scott was busy legally applying for a name change for his one-year-old son.
Scott and Jenner have two children – 5-year-old daughter Stormi and baby boy Aire.
When their second child was born in February 2022, the former couple had originally named him Susi.
They decided the name didn’t suit their newborn and revealed they had settled on the name Aire in January this year.
In legal documents published by TMZ, Scott and Jenner stated that they “regret the original name of Wolf Jacques Webster” and that Aire “is a better fit” for their baby.
The statement read: “Now that the petitioners have had a chance to spend time with their baby, they believe the name Aire Webster is more appropriate.”
