Sportswear giant Nike worked with Skepta on creating a Hybrid Air Max 97 silhouette, blended with the Classic BW shoe. The two have previously worked together last year, reworking Nike's Air Tuned 99. This time, Skepta opted for the Nike Air Max 97 as the new shoe's sole unit and the Air Classic BW uppers adorning the top.

In terms of colorways, the new hybrid sneakers are predominantly white, with contrasting details seen through branding details and sole units -- in the options of either red or blue. The iconic Nike swoosh stands out through this and travels across the heel. Another notable detail is the mesh pattern across the uppers, appearing to represent a honeycomb design. Japanese retailer 'mita Sneakers' unveiled a first look at the upcoming collaborative sneakers, rumored to be released on May 9th.
