Grime fans of the world unite! The king of the genre and your leader of the pack has designed a pair of very limited edition trainers in collaboration with Nike and they are pretty much the art of grime poured into a mean pair of trainers. Basically, they are Skepta AF. Inspired by the MOBO award-winning music video for his breakout song That’s Not Me, the Nike Air Max Deluxe SK transform the VHS aesthetic into a printed upper re-creating the effect of white noise all us pre-2000s kids will recognise as a real-life issue, not just a video effect.

One of the founding boys behind Boy Better Know and the artist recognised as single-handedly bringing grime into mainstream, Skepta is a new kind of hypebeast. As the side of the shoe proclaims, “Never Sleep On Tour” is the mantra while wearing these bad boys. The mantra for Skepta, and the mantra for us too – Fashion Month is upon us, and these are the exact shoes we’re not-sleeping on. Set your alarms for September 8th and be quick – it’s safe to say these Nikes are going to sell out pretty fast.l
