We're taking a look at some of our favourite sneaker collabs, and sneaker launches and of course, this includes Skepta's x Nike Nike Air Max 97 Sk trainer!

Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Sk trainer launched last September at his Moroccan souk style event with performances from Stefflon Don, Ms Banks, J Hus and more.

The hybrid construction shoe features a modified lacing system, Marrakech inspired iridescent copper colourways and the classic 97 Ultra air bag for ultimate comfort.

I am blessed to have been able to travel the world doing what I do. After touring so much, I was looking for some peace. I found Morocco, and it was perfect. Everything I wanted to feel about peace, I found it there. I like the architecture, the pastel colours, the taxis, the way that you could just go into a small little souk, open a door and it brings you into a big, massive, beautiful new world that you never would have expected
— Skepta

Bringing the Moroccan Souk vibes to London, Hotel Creative worked with Skepta and his team to make his vision a reality. The souk was bought to live with stalls all handpicked by Skepta himself including a pop up barber shops with trims from Hollywood John (Skepta’s barber), Sk Air merch stands with items from Skepta’s Mains clothing line with Ryan Hawaii adding bespoke art on the clothing, and ‘bossmans’ corner shop.

This was more than a launch. It was an exhibition. It was truly a Skepta experience.
