Skepta and Nike have come together to create the limited edition Nike Air Max 97.
The design is inspired by the first pair of trainers that the grime star ever owned, as well as the parallels that he recognised between London life and Moroccan street culture.
“Air Max is museum-worthy,” Skepta explained. “They’re worthy of standing next to other pieces of art. That’s why it’s more than just a shoe. And it’s always been that for me. When looking at this 97, I just wanted to feel the way I did when I was a child. And we got there. It’s perfect.”
