Skepta & Nike Unveil Air Max 97 Collaboration

Ask any fan of sneakers and they will undoubtedly tell you Air Maxes are a mainstay in most sneaker rotations and are by far one of the most popular sneakers ever. It is also no secret that Grime Music stars in the UK are known to sport them with their common style of tracksuits and other athletic wear. Today when arguably the biggest rapper from the UK, Skepta announced his collaboration with Nike on an Air Max it came as somewhat no surprise because the idea just simply “makes sense”. For the silhouettes 20th Anniversary Skepta pulled inspiration from his childhood growing up in London, Morocco stating “When designing the Air Max 97 Sk, we took the color palette of Morocco into consideration, but also the palette of the 1999 Air Tuned Max. That was the first shoe I ever saved up money to buy, so I wanted to bring its magic to the 97 the magic that made me first love Air Max when I saw it as a child.” This shoe will be releasing September 2nd on Nike.com
