Earlier this week, Nike and Skepta finally unveiled a collaborative Air Max 97.

Inspired by the Air Tuned Max from 1999, the slightly iridescent 97 arrived alongside some revealing quotes from Skepta himself, where he explains to Nike “I have been wearing Air Max for so long, since I was seven playing around in the estate; I feel like I know my Air Max well. Air Max is from when we were running the streets, it was comfortable to wear in London, whether you were going out to a club or kicking a ball in the streets. Those kinds of things stick in my mind from the young, magical, fantasy years of my life.”

To coincide with the news, we've trawled through the depths of Skepta's Instagram to dig up up some of his best on-foot looks from over the years. If you're a fan of the Boy Better Know chieftain, you already know he's big on the Air Max TN, but check out our recap below to see more Air Max highlights.
