Take A Closer Look At The Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind V ‘Bloody Chrome’ Trainer
Following on from the ‘Blue Chrome’ release back in March, we can now confirm the release of the Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind V ‘Bloody Chrome’ trainer for June 2021.
Following in the footsteps of the Nike Air Max 97 from 2017, the Nike Air Max 97/BW from 2018, the Nike Air Max Deluxe from 2018 & the Nike Shox from 2019, the Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind v ‘Bloody Chrome’ trainer marks the UK Grime MC’s 5th collaboration with the swoosh brand. After originally dropping in ‘blue chrome’ a few months back we are now treated to the latest red & black colourway which was originally teased back in January 2021.
Drawing inspiration from the artwork of Skepta’s ‘Ignorance is Bliss’ album from 2019, the collaboration features chrome silver swooshes, iridescent uppers and classic early noughties style. First released in 2000, the Air Max Tailwind V celebrated its 20th anniversary for 2020 which was originally when the Skepta collaboration was rumoured to drop. The hybrid design features caged upper inspiration from the Nike Air Max Plus with a digital print in a mixture of red & black hues. Other highlights include iridescent detailing to the tongue & ankle collar with SK branding to the tongue & the insoles.
