Nike Taps UK Rapper Skepta To Create His Own Look for the Shox TL

Skepta and Nike are back. After a short hiatus since their limited release of the Air Max Deluxe, the London musician stepped out in his latest Swoosh project. This time around, he’ll be giving us his take on the Shox TL.

Nike’s projects with the UK-based grime artist Skepta have been few and far between, delivering commercial hits each time. First, they dropped a colorful Air Max 97 Ultra inspired by Morocco, before releasing a tonal colorway of the Air Max BW, using opposing-colored Swooshes to differentiate each shoe. Next, the rapper helped the brand revive the famed Air Max Deluxe through his music-video inspired sneakers. Now, Nike has recruited Skepta once again to help promote the recently-revived Shox TL with his own colorway. Skepta’s look begins with the entirety of the Shox upper in pitch black, with Swooshes standing out on either side in metallic silver. The shock-absorbing midsole is colored bright red, helping the silhouette to stand out on your feet.


Skepta and Nike’s latest collaborative footwear project, focusing on the newly revived Shox TL, is rumored to release next week on September 12th, 2019. The special-edition release of the vintage Shox look will retail for a hefty $200 price tag, launching in limited numbers from both Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
