UK rapper Skepta and Nike will be expanding their partnership with another Air Max collaboration, this time on the Air Max Deluxe. Offering his interpretation of the 1999 Nike Air Max Deluxe, Skepta put together a tribute to New York City’s role in his career trajectory as an artist.
Honoring his relationship with the city, the Skepta x Nike Air Max Deluxe SK features a black neoprene base expressing a VHS static pattern decorated with “NEVER SLEEP ON TOUR” and “12:05 PM JUNE 08 2014” OSD mono font text. The text on the upper of the shoe commemorates the time and date Skepta released his breakout single “That’s Not Me” and reveals an ethos that informs his work ethic. Rounding up the design of the shoe is the contrasting dark red tinting found on the full-length Air unit sole system that elevates the upcoming release.
It’s no secret that Skepta loves an iconic Nike trainer. It would explain why he chose to collab on the Air Max 98 – a shoe which is 20 years old, yet just as timeless as ever. With so much hype on the run up to this launch and stock quantities expected to be limited, this looks to be another sellout.
If you are still searching for a pair of unique sneakers to add to your collection, then look no further than the Skepta x Nike Air Max Deluxe SK. Unlike any other model currently on the market, this sneaker will surely get you noticed. We recommend you go true to size for the perfect fit!
Perfect for both the street and the stage, the Skepta x Nike Air Max Deluxe SK is a must cop for any sneakerhead. Available in extremely limited numbers, be sure to cop while it is still in stock!
