Skepta on his new Nike Air Max 97 SK

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

British-Nigerian artist Skepta’s signature Air Max 97 is inspired by his love of #nike Air and his home-away-from-London, Morocco. A trip to Essaouira, a coastal city frequented by rockstars during the ‘60s, provided further colors, sounds and stories that would shape the Air Max 97 Sk collaboration.

Here, #skepta describes what took him to Morocco and how the shoe represents who he is and where he comes from.


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 colors, the taxis, the way that you could just go into a small little souq, open a door and it brings you into a big, massive, beautiful new world that you never would have expected.
