After a series of Coronavirus-related delays, the first rumoured images of Skepta’s next collaboration with Nike have arrived.

As reported by Airmaxarchives on Instagram the Nike Air Max Tailwind V SK Air 5, the model is a eye-catching blend between the OG Air Max Tailwind 5 and the Tailwind 5 Plus from 1999/2000. The design implements motifs from each model, with Skepta’s ‘SkAir’ branding featured on the lace lab.

The model has a black web-like pattern over the toe box taken from the Air Max Tailwind 5 Plus, with back end of the shoe including the zig zag (highlighted in chrome) and heel design, also taken from the OG. 3M iridescent runs along the tongue and the heel, with a striking red and orange pattern sitting prominently between the webbing⁣ on the upper.
