UK-based grime artist, Skepta, recently showcased a unique variation of theNike Air Classic BW that he happened to design.Dubbed “Blacklisted,” the sneaker flaunts an all-black makeup and essentially a nod to the artist’s 2012 mixtape of the same name. Comprised of smooth suede across the majority of its upper, the model rests atop a matching sole unit with its signature air bubble component visible in the heel.
The sneaker is rounded out with matching laces and leather Swooshes to define its colorless makeup. No word yet on a proposed release, although stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for further updates.Aside from Skepta’s blacked-out pair and a recent black/bright crimson colorway, the Nike Air Classic BW is unveiled in yet another finish of Persian Violet this season, which actually released a few years earlier.
Comprised of breathable mesh and tonal suede overlays across its predominantly black upper, the defining tone is evident on the Swoosh branding, collar section, inner lining, tongue and rear portion of its rubber sole unit. The palette is capped off with the application of white accents gracing the heel counter and flowing towards the midsole, as it’s also implemented on the leather piping that encompasses its profile.Finished off with matching black laces and outsole, you can purchase this latest variation of the model at select Nike stores nationwide now.
