Nike Continues To Embrace Its Part In UK Grime’s DNA #SkAIR

Given Skepta’s considerable prominence in the streetwear industry it is perhaps a surprise that he hasn’t had a larger collaboration up until this point; however, hard work and endurance has finally come to materialization as after a long wait and misleading previews including a ‘Blacklisted’ Air Max BW, Skepta’s vision has finally taken form in the silhouette of an Air Max 97 Ultra. The iridescent upper is clearly reminiscent of a 1999 Nike Air Max Tuned, with the rest of shoe as a whole throwing homage to the blurred lines between streetwear and sportswear filling the streets of London in modern times. Skepta, as anticipated, has nailed this one. Expect these to be flying off the shelves on September 2nd, priced at £145 on the Nike SNEAKRS App and instore at various UK retailers.
