Nike has tapped UK grime artist Skepta to create a collaborative take on the Air Max 97, representing the latest release in celebration of the silhouette's 20th anniversary celebrations. Skepta teamed up with Nike designers to conjure a baroque color palette reminiscent of Morocco. as well as a 1999 colorway of the Nike Air Tuned Max -- the first Nike shoe that Skepta ever bought with his own money. The result is an eye-catching AM97 done up in a polyurethane-coated copper, complemented with black mesh and rose gold leather. Check out detailed looks in the gallery below, and expect the kicks to launch September 2nd through Nike+ SNKRS, and elect retailers.

Release Date: 9/2/17 (Saturday)
