Skepta x Nike Air Max 97/BW

by Henrik Buzzi


Fresh from premiering his latest track and judging the London round of Nike's "On Air" workshops. Skepta and Nike link up once more to fuse together two Nike classics in the Air Max 97 and the Air Max BW.

Featuring a white Nike Air Max BW Upper- a shoe all about the swagger associated with its hard lines and 'Big Window' air bubble. "When I was younger, the Nike Air bubble was the flex", says Skepta. "The bigger your air bubble was, the more people knew you were stepping well".

The shoe pops with a contrasting red swoosh and sole inner colour on the right. With the same details on the left this time arriving in cobalt blue. All this is built on Nike's full length visible air sole borrowed from the 97. Before Finally as an added detail the SK Air logo appears on the outsoles. The logo pays homage to the Air Max Plus logo and is in the shape of a UK electrical plug. The Nike Air Max 97/BW x Skepta releases May 19 at selected retailers such as hanon.
