Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind V “Chrome Blue”

by OVERSTANDARD

UK style icon / rapper Skepta has presented his fifth installment of the SK Air silhouette. This time it’s the Tailwind series, which is inspired by nature, connecting the metamorphosis that butterflies undergo with the role of creative rebirth in his career.†

A butterfly wing print is located on the upper part of the sneaker and comes in sublimated blue, a nod to Skepta’s exploration and his evolution in both nature and art.

“We are all going through a metamorphosis, a new stage of life.” “We chose this butterfly print from about 50 different options because it had to evoke the right emotion.”

The shoe also references elements of previous SK models and Skepta’s career. Like the chrome Swoosh worn by the 2019 SK Shox and thermographic heel honoring the artist’s “Ignorance is Bliss” album cover.

A matching tracksuit and bucket hat will appear alongside the shoes on April 2.
