Ahead of this summer’s global release, the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97/BW finally gets unveiled.
Fans of the previous SK Air Collection – which featured that Moroccan-inspired Air Max 97 – will surely be hyped at the news of this second collaborative pack from the UK grime artist.
Just like many Frankenstein creations in 2018, Skepta and Nike bring together two iconic silhouettes into one tidy package. It’s a sole-swapped hybrid with an Air Max 97 midsole below the upper of an Air Max BW.
If that wasn’t interesting enough, an alternate colourway features to each shoe. The left pair opts for a vibrant shade of blue whilst the right features in red. Otherwise, a white mesh and leather upper gives a look clean. SK Air branding completes this unique silhouette, hitting the inner sole-bed.
Skepta was recently spotted in a tracksuit sporting the same colours as the collab. The tracksuit is actually by MAINS – a contemporary fashion label founded by Skepta.
Could this be a hint that MAINS are collaborating with Nike for the accompanying apparel?!
Let us know your thoughts on the SK x Nike Air Max 97/BW in the comments below. Is this a must-cop, or has Skepta fallen short with this hybrid?
Keep it locked to @thesolesupplier for more news of a release date. Some sources are suggesting that these may launch as early as May 9th.
