“I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was seven playing around in the estate; I feel like I know my Air Max well,” – Skepta
If you were feeling quite perplexed by the circa-1998 Air Max Tuned stickers featuring the letters SK popping up on your social media timelines over the weekend…well we have the answers you’ve been searching for. As Skepta, has an Air Max 97 of his own coming in collaboration with Nike. The China or Platinum Anniversary as it is affectionately known, has seen a multitude of OG releases, new iterations and looks but not much in the way of collaborations. Gathering inspiration from 1999’s original Air Max Tuned colorway, the iridescent beauty became the signature behind Skepta’s project. As he feels inspired by Moroccan culture and peacefulness.
The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 will be available on SNKRS and at select retailers on September 2nd.
