U.K. rapper Skepta and his exclusive Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 is releasing this weekend and the collaboration is inspired from Skepta’s home of Morocco, as well as the palette of the 1999 Air Tuned Max.
For this release, the legendary grime artist turns his attention to the Air Max 97 which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Marrakesh provides the inspiration for this rendition with a glimmering iridescent upper that celebrates that vibrant Moroccan city. A deep hue or red transitions to gold and purple thanks to that contemporary use of materials. Although this is completely unique, it does stay true to the original silhouette complete with a wavy construct and mini-Swoosh along the sidewall.
The Skepta Air Max 97 also features woven detailing in a deep shade of black to match a chunky and robust tongue. A gold panel features on the sidewall and a black midsole adds a stealthy contrast underfoot.
The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra will drop in our CPT & JHB store ONLY on Saturday the 9th of September 2017 for the retail price of R2899.00
