A clash of cities: London meets Marrakech for this Nike Air Max 97 Sk x Skepta.
As Skepta has travelled from London to the world through his music he has become closely affiliated with the destinations along the way with each of these places offering him something unique.
The Air Max 97 Sk explores the clash of Skepta’s home town of London with his spiritual home of Marrakech. Skepta found many similarities between these two cities: the hustle of youth, kids wearing tracksuits and Air Max, skylines populated with satellite dishes and bustling markets.
The shoe pays homage to London by bringing the same iridescent upper material from Skepta’s first ever Air Max – the Air Tuned Max ’99, and combine that with Moroccan-inspired woven detailing, all of which sits atop the iconic 97 Air Unit.
