Skepta’s Nike Air Max ’97

For all you sneaker heads out there the wait is over, Skepta’s highly anticipated release of his new brand collaboration with Nike for Nike Air Max 97’s, is finally here.

The Morocco inspired shoe has braided embroidery along the tongue and heel and came after Skeppy took a trip to the city of Essouira.

Speaking on the collaboration the North London Grime artist went onto say, “I found Morocco, and it was perfect. Everything I wanted to feel about peace, I found it there. I wanted to bring its magic to the 97, the magic that first made me fall in love with Air Max.

“I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was 7 playing around in the estate,” Skepta continued. “Air Max is from when we were running the streets, it was comfortable to wear in London, whether you were going out to a club or kicking a ball in the streets.”
The new Skepta Nike Air Max 97’s landed online and in select stores from September 2nd but have sold out almost instantaneously, so if you manage to get your hands on a pair you have done well!
The kicks follow on from the launch of the BBK’s artist very own brand “Mains”, as well as a collaboration with No Fear.
