Skepta drops his next Nike Collab - The Nike SK SHOX
From humble beginnings in Tottenham, London to international star and a chief in his village - Ijebu Ode in Ogun state, Nigeria, Skepta’s latest Nike collab is about heritage and celebration.
After receiving his chieftainship for recognition of a positive contribution to community wellbeing in his parent’s home state, it made him realise that anyone can be a chief, but not everyone is raised thinking that they can be.
The Nike SK SHOX is to remind those that we can all achieve our wildest dreams through motivation, inspiration and attitude, anything is possible. Have pride in where you’re from and the journey that you’re heading on. Although it may be hard, goals are set to be accomplished and dreams really can come true.
You are a chief.
The black upper and bold red sole are the colour-ways of the shoe. The silhouette of the Nike SHOX was selected based on Skepta’s love of when he would visit Manchester and see their style of the kids wearing windbreakers and the SHOX.
