A Closer Look at the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97/BW

Date: April 27 2018

By: Matt Williams


It's official: Skepta has a new Nike colab on the way! Big Smoke took to social media to share the news with his followers, confirming yesterday's sneaky leak. The collaboration merges the Air Max BW upper and Air Max 97 sole unit, with a few special tweaks that elevate it beyond your typical hybrid, including hexagonal mesh, tongue cut-outs, 'SK Air' branding on the insoles and branded padlock hang tags.

Skepta has embraced a mismatched aesthetic for his latest design, similar to Kendrick Lamar's early collaborations with Reebok. The left shoe features blue branding, Air units, insoles and laces while the right opts for red. The aesthetic carries over to a matching tracksuit that Skepta also previewed.
