Boy Better Know x Nike Jerseys Are Being Auctioned For Charity

Custom jersey culture has a strong presence right now on the limited edition market, and Boy Better Know are about to give you the chance to own one of the most restricted Nike designs that caused huge hype but was never released. Each jersey worn at their London o2 takeover in 2017 is being auctioned off for charity this weekend.

The event hosted by BBK in August 2017 saw the grime collective put on a show of headline material on and off the pitch. Crossing the scenes of football and music with a Nike 5-a-side football tournament that took things from the stage to the cage, and it was this tournament where the shirts were worn before being archived... until now.

Each of the twelve shirts worn at the event by Skepta, Jme, Jammer and the rest of the BBK squad have been handed to online charity shop COLLECTIONS, which was created by Julie Adenuga and Maya Jama. COLLECTIONS takes items from the wardrobes of their family and friends to auction off to raise money for various charities, in this case Epilepsy Action.

The shirts caused big hype upon their appearance at the tournament but fans were left disappointed when no release followed. But now, the graphic jerseys featuring a BBK logo on a Union Jack emblem alongside the number ‘0’ on the back with ‘NO PHOTOS’ are available to buy... kind of.

Get yourselves down to Jme’s grime MC pop-up shop at Wembley Boxpark this weekend (10th-11th August) where the shirts will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. They're open from 1pm until 8pm and will auction six of the shirts on Saturday and the other six on Sunday. You'll only be able to buy one per person, so that scraps your plans of having the most limited and hyped 5-a-side kit in your city.​
