A Better Look at the Upcoming Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind 5 Colab
A closer look at the upcoming Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind 5 collaboration has been shared, after the rapper teased the release over the weekend on his own socials. The images were shared on Instagram by Samuel Trotman, aka samutaro, and it turns out there will be more than just sneakers releasing.
As previously seen, this is a colab on a relatively obscure model from the turn of the millennium, which was originally known as the Air Max Tailwind 5 Plus. These new angles, plus the accompanying video seen below, reveal a rather glossy and shiny finish to the colourway. Which makes sense, given there is an abundance of smooth black TPU webbing across the upper, faux-chrome arch hardware, and the iridescent heel counter and tongue, which is undoubtedly also reflective.
Speaking of shine, new intel comes in the form of the accompanying shoe box, which has been specially made for this release. It features a very shiny metallic blue panel, complementing the Air Max Tailwind 5 (Plus)’s colourway. And this drop will have a matching Sk Air branded Nike tracksuit that consists of a zip-up jacket and trackpants that each have the same metallic blue panels.
As exciting as this prospect is, no one has divulged a release date so far. Stay tuned for when it’s finally announced.
