Skepta’s wildly colour-blocked 2017 colab with Nike came out of left field and into our hearts (and onto our Staff Picks of 2017). And so excitement was high when the Grime artist announced an Air Max 97/BW colab with the Swoosh earlier this year.
According to py_rates, we can look forward to even more from the partnership in 2018. Word is that Skeppy will take his hand to the Air Max Deluxe – its first outing since 1999 – in deep burgundy and black. Rumour has it the colab will release sometime in July.
@Nike x @skeptagram will be dropping a 2nd shoe this year with the duo bringing back the ‘Air Max Deluxe’ for the first time since 1999. A quick update on the ‘Air Max 97/ BW SK’ hybrid we leaked back in January, the pair is set to drop soon in April. Tag a friend who will be looking to cop. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴

The ever-reliable leakers maintain that the hybrid 97/BW colab is still in the works, tipped to release in April, so get ready for a double-drop of SkAirs in 2018.
Stay tuned for further info.
