Boy Better Know general and grime ambassador, Skepta, has some big news: the UK artist took to Instagram to announce that he and Nike have come together for a collaborative sneaker. The “Blacklisted” Air Max BW is a both a throwback and a roadman staple — harking back to Skeppy’s #tracksuitmafia, the creps boast an all-black colorway and showcases the eponymous “big window” at the heel.
