Following early rumors back in 2019, Skepta‘s delayed Nike Air Max Tailwind V SK Air 5 has finally surfaced.

Courtesy of Air Max Archives, the first look at a colorway from the grime icon’s fifth collaboration with Nike. The Air Max Tailwind V SK Air 5 continues the hybrid theme of Skepta’s signature line mashing the original Air Max Tailwind 5 with elements of the Tailwind 5 Plus from 1999/2000. Standout details include the black web cage that frames the brightly colored base, dynamic chrome zig-zag that stretches from the midsole up. But it is the iridescent panels on the tongue and heel/collar section that really serves as a striking point on the shoe.

Take a first look at the Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind V SK Air 5 above.
