Take a sneak peak at Skepta’s new Air Max 97 collaboration

22 August 2017

Skepta has revealed the first look at his brand new collaboration with Nike for some brand new Nike Air Max 97’s.

The Morocco inspired shoe has braided embroidery along the tongue and heel and came after Skeppy took a trip to the city of Essouira.

Speaking on the collaboration, he said, “I found Morocco, and it was perfect. Everything I wanted to feel about peace, I found it there. I wanted to bring its magic to the 97, the magic that first made me fall in love with Air Max.

“I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was 7 playing around in the estate,” Skepta continued.  “Air Max is from when we were running the streets, it was comfortable to wear in London, whether you were going out to a club or kicking a ball in the streets.”

The new Skepta Nike Air Max 97’s are due to land online and in select stores on September 2nd.

The creps follow on from the launch of the North London artist’s own brand Mains, as well as a collaboration with No Fear.
