The Nike Air Max Tailwind V Skepta trainer will mark the UK Grime MC’s 5th collaboration with the Swoosh brand and launches this week!
From reviving Grime music to bringing back OG Air Max trainers, Joseph Junior Adenuga aka Skepta aka Big Smoke has done it all. From Mercury Price winning albums like ‘Konnichiwa’ from 2016, collaborating with ASAP Rocky & even putting his own spin on a range of Nike Air Max styles. When the London born MC ditched the decks for the mic, a contract with the Swoosh brand was probably nothing more than a pipe dream. The fact is dreams can come true, if you’re prepared to commit everything & put the hours in. After recently teasing the next chapter of Sk Air, we can take a closer look at the Nike Air Max Tailwind V Skepta trainer courtesy of our German friends at 43einhalb.
The next chapter of Sk Air opts for the Air Max Tailwind V trainer. First released in 2000, the Air Max Tailwind V celebrated its 20th anniversary for 2020 which was originally when the Skepta collaboration was also rumoured to drop. The hybrid design features caged upper inspiration from the Nike Air Max Plus with a digital print in a mixture of blue, purple & black hues. Other highlights include iridescent detailing to the tongue & ankle collar with SK branding to the tongue & the insoles.
The Nike Air Max Tailwind V Skepta trainer will be dropping this coming Friday 2nd April 2021 from a range of retailers we work with. Also don’t forget to subscribe to mint. & follow @the_mint_mag to keep up to date with all the latest apparel, footwear & everything else in between.
