Grime artist Skepta finally gets an official collaboration with Nike. The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra take inspiration from a trip to Morocco and Air Tuned Max. The Air Max 97 Sk feature a Moroccan print on the insole and braided embroidery on the tongue. The Nike Air Tuned Max (1999) happens to be the first pair of trainers Skepta saved up for and bought with his own money. His collab with Nike brings back the classic Vivid Sulfur colorway from the Air Tuned Max.
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.
The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra is set to release on September 2nd online at Nike.com and Sneakersnstuff.com.
