Skepta's Nike Shoes
This is huge for Skepta. The London MC has his own Nike footwear collaboration, a take on the Air Max 97 that is being called the Air Max 97 SK. Skepta explained that the design is inspired by the first shoe he ever saved up money to buy, the 1999 Air Tuned Max.
"I remember going to sleep at night, and putting them in a position in my room where, when I was lying in my bed, I could still see them in clear vision," Skepta explains. "It was the color; it looked like some kind of oil, the change from alien green to dark burgundy and then to light." The shoe is also inspired by Morocco, with embroidery on the tongue and back of the shoe.
The Nike Air Max 97 Sk is available globally starting September 2 on nike.com and at select retailers. Good luck getting your hands on these creps.
