Skepta & Nike Officially Unveil the Air Max 97/BW SK Inspired by the City of Paris

After releasing his collaborative sneaker with Nike, the Air Max 97 SK, last summer, Skepta is back again with a second Nike silhouette that will continue to draw inspiration from the artist’s experiences with cultures. This year, he’ll be telling a deep story about his roots in London and Paris, a city that heavily contributed to his growth and success as a musician.

The collaboration brings about the Nike X Skepta Air Max 97/BW SK that features the upper of the Air Max BW, a favorite among a variety of subcultures upon its release back in 1991, especially among the Hip-hop crews and football fans in Paris. The midsole comes from the Air Max 97, which Skepta used in his first-ever sneaker collaboration with Nike back in September 2017.

The hybrid sneaker comes in a clean white upper with touches of leather on the side and beehive patterns on top. The left pair features the color blue, both on the iconic Air Max “Air Bags” on the midsole and the Nike “Swoosh” that extends and wraps around the heel. The same goes for the right pair, but with the color red in place of the blue.

SNKRS Europe and Japan will also be featuring the pair, while other online retailers and footwear boutiques such as Patta, Tres Bien, and Concepts will also be joining in on the release globally. The price is said to be set at $235 or around 7,523 THB and will take some searching to get hold of one, but it will definitely be worth it when you do.
