Earlier this afternoon, grime god Skepta unveiled a new Nike collaboration on Instagram: his all-black reboot of the beloved BW model. "49 weeks ago I went to the Nike HQ in Portland, Oregon and sat with senior designer to talk about air max. Today I'm happy to present the Blacklisted Air Max BW," the rapper wrote in a caption accompanying the first shot of the sneakers. The shoes are perfectly in keeping with Skepta's signature style: monochrome minimalism with a sporty edge. Unfortunately it remains unclear whether Skepta's beautiful BWs will be put into wide production and when they'll be available to eager grime fans.
