The third collaboration is the Air Max Deluxe SK, which the MC first unveiled via Instagram Stories.
The static-like print on the upper is inspired by the music video for single “That’s Not Me” and, according to Nike, “also embodies Skepta’s insomniac-like mind when he’s on tour.”
On the lateral forefoot, the Air Max Deluxe marks the time and release date of “That’s Not Me.” On the other side, Skepta’s wakeful tour lifestyle is represented by the words “NEVER SLEEP ON TOUR.”
It appears the release will also be available in women’s sizes, with Skepta’s colleague and manager Grace Ladoja appearing in the shoe’s promo campaign, which can be seen at neversleepontour.com.
