UK Grime legend Skepta teamed up with Nike late last year to release his signature take on the Air Max 97, and now the star is back again with a brand new model. This time around, a brand new silhouette is seeing the SkAir treatment, and it’s an Air Max BW/Air Max 97 hybrid.
The original SkAir Air Max 97 saw huge success last year. The sneaker sold out on the day of release, and is now highly desired for on the resell market. Ever since last year’s release there’s been rumours of another Skepta x Nike collaboration, but it wasn’t until earlier this week that we were graced with the images of the upcoming pair. The pair in question is a hybrid model (something which Nike has been quite fond of recently), which combines the upper of the Air Max BW with the sole unit of an Air Max 97. It certainly is impressive to look at, so take a closer look below at shots that Skepta himself shared via his Instagram account.
The sneakers feature an interesting twist, whereas the left shoe is decked out in a blue colourway, and the right in red. Although this sounds a little gimmicky, it actually works superbly well here – just check out the matching tracksuit Skepta has shared via Instagram if you’re not quite sold yet. All in all, this pair could be gearing up to be the hottest release this summer. We’re certainly looking forward to getting our hands on a pair.
If you’re as keen as we are on picking up this limited edition collaboration, you’re going to have to sit tight for a little longer yet. No official details regarding a release date or price have been unveiled, but we’d expect an announcement in the coming weeks. Keep your eyes locked into our blog for the latest regarding this story and much more.
