Skepta teamed up with Nike last Summer for a limited edition sneaker collab, the Air Max 97 SK, which combined insight from the grime star’s local London scene with inspiration drawn from trips to Essaouira, Morocco.
For Skepta’s second Nike collab, the Air Max 97/BW SK, he has once again drawn on inspiration from London, as well as his relationship to Paris, one the first places he broke outside the UK.
According to Nike, five facts about Skepta’s relationship to the BW and to Paris include:
The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 BW, which comes dressed in white with blue and red swooshes, will first release SNEAKRS STASH in Paris on May 14. At that time, app users who find hidden locks (replicating those used in the design) around the city will open access to purchase.
The full release the shoe on May 19 will come through the following locations in Paris: Pigalle, The Broken Arm, Starcow, Shinzo, Acte 2, SNS and Footpatrol. Additionally, the Air Max 97/BW SK will be available digitally from SNEAKRS in Europe and SNKRS in Japan. Select retailers (including Patta, Très Bien, Concepts and more) will carry it globally.
