Tomorrow is the highly anticipated launch of Skepta’s trainer with Nike. A huge move for Skepta and for the culture. Skepta is truly unstoppable at this point. In an interview with Tim Westwood following the BBK takeover, Skepta spoke about how throughout his time at school he would constantly find himself drawing trainer designs with Nike swooshes all over his school books and on the school desks and now he has his own trainer! It is a dream come true and Skepta never fails to remind us that if you chase your dreams anything is truly possible.


To celebrate the release of the Air Max 97 Sk, Skepta and Nike bring to us Sk: ON AIR which will be an exclusive event at The Arches, London allowing us to immerse ourselves in Skepta’s world, there will be exclusive merch available, food, drinks and live performances all in a Moroccan souk clash with classic London market vibe. Here you will also get a first look at the 97 Sk’s before they are available to purchase for the rest of the world the following day.
