Just yesterday we announced that a Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 would be releasing in the near future. Less than 24 hours later we’re here to provide you with a first look, official images and a release date.
As mentioned before, the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 comes dressed in a Multi-Color, Vivid Sulfur and Black color scheme. The colors and design on the shoe is said to be inspired by Skepta’s home of Morocco and the hues used on the 1999 Air Tuned Max, which happen to be the first shoes Skepta was able to buy with his own money.
The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 comes with an upper that’s iridescent, polyutherane-coated that comes with a Copper/Rose Gold leather hue contrasted by the Black mesh and the HF weld of the Swoosh logo. More Air Tuned Max inspiration is found on the shoe via 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 put on shoes. Like what you see? Look for the Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 to drop on September 2nd for the retail price of $180.
