Skepta and Nike Bring London style to the UAE with their new Shox collab
This week has, understandably, seen a lot of talk about a certain other musician’s trainer line, with leaked prototypes, new colourways and a private-jet pit-stop to hand over a pair to a famous friend (Another One etc etc…)
Elsewhere though, former British GQ cover star and Mercury Music Prize winning musician Skepta proves there is almost nothing he can’t do, by debuting his latest trainer collab with Nike.
The sneakers, a version of Nike’s Shox, with their distinctive, part hollow ‘piston cushioning’ soles were originally leaked (in the grand tradition of trainer releases) back in February and are finally available to buy. They mark the fourth time Skepta and Nike have collaborated.
The black upper with silver highlights and ‘university red’ sole unit reflect a colour scheme now synonymous with Skepta, something he describes as “Bloody Chrome”. The glossy PU cage that envelops the upper, along with the silver Nike tick, take the whole thing up a notch.
Dropping now and available online at Amongst Few, expect to pay $245
