A First Look at Skepta’s New Air Max 97 Collaboration
Details on the sneaker include braided embroidery along the tongue and heel, which is a tribute to the embellished sportswear Skepta saw in Morocco, an insole print inspired by traditional Moroccan patterns, and an original Sk logo, which is a reference to the Air Max TN logo and comes in the shape of a UK electrical plug. This logo was plastered around London over the weekend to tease the as yet unannounced collaboration.
Skepta also explained : “I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was 7 playing around in the estate; 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 Air Max 97 Sk is set to drop via the Nike+ Sneakrs app, the brand’s web store and select retailers on September 2.
