Travis Scott and the sneakers that changed the way I look
- by admin
Travis scottsons shoes were one of the first to become iconic in the footwear industry.
With the rise of hip-hop and other artists pushing the limits of fashion, scott was at the forefront of the industry, creating a collection of sneakers that made the fashion industry look like it was a kid’s game.
But the sneakers were not what he was looking for.
“It was just too early,” scott said in his 2008 autobiography, Travis Scott.
“I had never worn a pair of sneakers.
They were too small and too thick.
I was just a teenager and couldn’t take them on a run.”
So, in the summer of 1980, scot decided to make a change.
In 1982, he created the first sneaker called the “Scott’s Trailers.”
The shoes, with the slogan “Scots Trailers are your sneakers,” were made with high-quality leather and suede.
They became the first shoe to win the “Best New Style” award from The Fashion Industry Magazine.
“Scot was like a rock star.
We’d all get together at his house and he’d just wear them,” says Scott.
“He wore them everywhere.
They got on the top of the best-selling list in every major shoe store.”
A year later, in 1983, scots signature sneakers debuted at the Paris Fashion Week.
The shoes featured a mesh lining, high-tops, and a zipper.
“These shoes were so comfortable,” says scot.
After scot’s shoes made it onto the market, he continued to expand the company, creating more and more shoes and sneakers. “
There were always a lot of compliments on them.”

“The scott shoes were very important in the development of sneakers,” says jordan.
“Thats how we started to be successful.”
In 1987, scoth opened his flagship store in Los Angeles called the Scott Collection.
“Our motto was to be one of those brands that had to be at the top,” says robert scott.
The name Scott Collection was inspired by scott’s signature shoes.
“We thought that name should be like ‘Scot,’ so that it would resonate with people,” says rob.
Scott would continue to change the way people looked at sneakers, and his influence on fashion was felt all over the world.
“From the moment that the first Scott’s shoes were released, they were the standard,” says sara scott, a designer who was born in New York City and lives in LA.
“People were wearing these shoes all the time.
It was the most popular fashion statement.”
Today, scotte’s sneakers are a global brand, with over 7,000 shops worldwide.
They’re also a staple in fashion shows around the world and are sold in over 100 countries.
“Everywhere I go, I see them everywhere,” says daniel scott and he adds, “Everybody in my life wears them.”
Today’s fashion trend is the casual sneaker, which is an all-in-one style that includes sneakers, flip flops, and sandals.
But even though it may be the latest trend, many classic scotts shoes remain popular, including the iconic scott boots, which are worn by celebrities including Rihanna and Gwen Stefani.
“To be able to wear these shoes to work, you have to wear them in your car, so it really is timeless,” says brian scott of his scott classics.
“And if you can get them for sale, you can go out and buy them,” scot says.
Today, some of the scott classic shoes still remain in the world of fashion.
But, these classic scot shoes are not as widely worn as they once were.
“In my day, it was hard to get them,” laura scott says.
“Now, you only have to go to a thrift store to find them.
You can find them at Walmart.”
Today scott scott has an entire closet full of his iconic shoes.
But now that the scot classics are getting lost in time, scotted shoes have been reinterpreted by fashion designers.
“Some of the designers have made the scots classic shoes a little more contemporary,” says laura.
“One of my favorites is Mimi Lee.
She has these leather boots that are so comfortable.
She’s wearing them in the movie ‘The Princess Bride.’
And she looks like she has these sneakers.
So, it’s definitely a new trend.”
