Introducing the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 SK – another fire release from the King of Grime! That’s right, this collaboration comes five years after an initial release from Nike and Skepta known as the Air Max BW ‘Blacklisted’. Just like that pair, you can expect a quick sellout when these arrive!

This time around, the legendary grime artist turns his attention to the AM97 which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Marrakesh provides the inspiration for this rendition with a glimmering iridescent upper that celebrates that vibrant Moroccan city.

A deep hue or red transitions to gold and purple thanks to that contemporary use of materials. Although this is completely unique, it does stay true to the original silhouette complete with a wavy construct and mini-Swoosh along the sidewall.

The Skepta Air Max 97 also features woven detailing in a deep shade of black to match a chunky and robust tongue. A gold panel features on the sidewall and a black midsole adds a stealthy contrast underfoot.

Don’t expect an easy cop when the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 SK launches on Saturday 2nd September via the retailers listed. There’ll be plenty of sneakerheads hoping to cop, so keep checking back for more updates and stockist alerts.
