After 2016’s toned-down “Blacklisted” Air Max BW and 2017’s Morocco-inspired Air Max 97 Ultra, grime legend and Air Max pioneer Skepta is joining forces with Nike for a third collaborative Air Max release, a brand-new 97/BW hybrid silhouette. Boasting a tonal white mesh Air Max BW upper with white leather detailing, the right shoe features a bold red rubber Swoosh and Air Max 97 cushioning unit, while the left shoe flips the script with a blue rubber Swoosh and Air Max unit. The shoe’s look is completed with a pink SKAIR hit on each insole for a touch of hidden detailing. Images of a co-branded padlock have also surfaced, but it’s uncertain if the padlock accompanies the sneakers or is a separate accessory. No official pricing information for this unique hybrid Air Max silhouette has been announced yet, but look for Skepta’s roadman-approved Air Max 97/BW to drop on Nike.com May 19th.
