Following months of hype on the build up to this release, fans will soon have a chance to cop the Skepta x Nike Air Max Deluxe SK. It’s this week’s greatest release, scheduled to arrive a select stockists on Saturday, 8th September.
This limited-edition crep is the latest collaboration from the King Of Grime. It’s yet another hotly anticipated trainer, following the likes of that hybrid Air Max 97/BW and last year’s Moroccan-inspired Air Max 97.
This time around, Skepta pays homage to those long days on the road. The insomnia that kicks in when touring from one city to the next would explain the shoe’s graphic along the sidewall, “Never Sleep On Tour.”
A static print covers the Air Max Deluxe, a iconic shoe from the 90s that was one of the first of its kind to showcase a stretchy neoprene upper. An Air Unit was borrowed from the Air Max 97. On this pair, it adds some vibrancy against that stealthy colourway in a bold shade of red.
