Skepta has been a major influence for the recent influx in Grime's popularity across the globe, consorting with the likes of Drake & Flatbush Zombies on the other side of the pond. He has been a voice that has reverberated around our store many times and especially when Simon our store manager is in charge of the Airplay.
Skepta has essentially become the King Of Grime thanks to his notoriety in both the music & fashion industry, creating a new resurgence in the 'Roadman' look. He has been an inspiration for many people and has worked with great names in the fashion world which have led to him becoming a style icon.
He has previously collaborated with Nike on the Air Max BW which was dubbed 'Blacklisted', this time around he has chosen to take design on the 97 Ultra silhouette, which seems only fitting as it is their 20th anniversary and Air Max is synonymous with the streets of London.
The colourway is the standout part of this release, with a vibrant iridescent makeup featuring hues of Rust & Green that interchange depending on the way the light bounces on them. They take inspiration from an old Air Max Tuned colourway, which was the first Air Max model that Skepta saved up to buy on his own.
