You know what, something about arguing with Rodman doesn’t seem like a good idea so if I was Travis… I’ll just let him have this one.
Dennis Rodman is one of the infamous and notable athletes of all time. From his days as an ambassador to North Korea, to his unique commentary on basketball, to his truly interesting personality, at the end of the day, Rodman is unapologetically himself, and you either love him or hate him for it. Although, there is no denying that sometimes, his delivery can rub people the wrong way.
If you know anything about Rodman and his history as an athlete, you know he had his own shoe at one point. This sneaker was called the Nike Air Darwin which featured a chunky design. The sneaker was known for having a backward swoosh near the back heel. Ultimately, it was a nice nod to his unique personality. However, decades later, Travis Scott came through with a backward swoosh of his very own.
As it turns out, Rodman has taken notice of Scott’s design. According to TMZ, Rodman was at a Got Sole event in Chicago where a fan came up to him with a pair of Travis Scott Air Jordan 1s. Consequently, Rodman couldn’t help but let people know that he was the true originator of this aesthetic. The former Bulls superstar looked at the camera and asked Scott to give him some credit. Mostly, Rodman didn’t seem too pressed about it all. However, he did want to make it be known that he came up with the concept first.
Overall, it is clear that Travis’ shoe has had a lot more impact than Rodman’s…and I also don’t think they look anything alike other than the Swoosh. Take a look at the clip and let us know your thoughts. Can anyone really take credit for the swoosh other than Nike?
