Using inspiration from Skepta’s home of Morocco and the palette of the 1999 Air Tuned Max – which was the first shoe he ever saved up money to buy.

The upper of the Nike Air Max 97 Sk has iridescent, polyutherane-coated, Copper/Rose Gold leather paired with Black sandwich mesh and an HF weld of the Swoosh logo (instead of an embroidered Swoosh). It draws inspiration from the colors of the 1999 Air Tuned Max, including the Yellow Air unit. The SK logo is in the shape of a British plug, and it’s mixed with the classic, small TN badges that they put on shoes.
