Nike and Boy Better Know’s Skepta continue to build on SkAir’s grime-influenced legacy with a visually stunning take on the Air Max Tailwind V.
Continuing their longstanding collaborative relationship, Nike and Skepta share the latest offering in the SkAir line – the Air Max Tailwind V.
Paying homage to the Boy Better Know rapper’s penchant for early ’00s Air Max designs, Skepta’s partnership with the Beaverton stalwarts has cycled through a plethora of iconic silhouettes from their extensive archive. From his take on the Air Max 97, the Air Max Deluxe, and more recently, the Shox TL, the Grime superstar showcases his deep seated love for all things Nike, applying the trademark Grime aesthetic that has become synonymous with the revival of classic ’00s sneaker styles.
This time round, Skepta takes a more colourful approach, covering the Air Max Tailwind V in an electric blue and black colour combination. Embellished with TPU caging across the uppers for a twist on the model, Air Max cushioning underfoot ensures comfort as well as that all important street-ready look. Supplemented with a matching tracksuit and bucket hat, the latest SkAir capsule is brimming with Skepta’s distinctive style and Nike’s classic design codes for a winning combination that truly encapsulates the Grime legend’s status as a cultural tastemaker.
The Nike x Skepta SkAir capsule is available for registration online now via END. Launches.
