UK’s rapper Skepta and Nike are set to release a sequel to their Nike Air Max 97 collaboration from 2017 beginning this Spring 2018. This time they will be working on the all-new Nike Air Max 97/BW hybrid model.
Inspired by his relationship to Paris (which was one of the first places he broke outside the UK) by bridging a gap between Paris and London. Linked by train, the two cities stand among Europe’s style capitals (not to mention being actual capitals) and the Nike Air Max 97/BW SK ties them together through the tricolore reference but more discretely honors the Nike Air Max BW’s cultural cache in both places.
