VERSUS and Nike took over size? Brixton for the latest edition of ‘The House Party’, which celebrated South London and the area’s undeniable impact on football and music.
Some of the most influential ballers and artists of this generation have come from South of the River, and the VERSUS community came out in force for a night of music and conversation – powered by the upcoming launch of the ?exclusive Nike Air Max 1 ’87 – that helped to tell the story of what makes South London so special.
Mayowa Quadri hosted a live episode of ‘The Future of Football’ for an inspirational conversation about the impact of ‘Concrete Catalonia’ alongside Arsenal and England young baller Bradley Ibrahim, author Aniefiok ‘Neef’ Ekpoudom, and Brixton royalty Cristale.
Once the podcast wrapped, Cristale also jumped on the mic to deliver a special in-store performance for her people, including ‘Roadents’ which prominently featured in the final season of Top Boy. As always, the night also featured a blend of gaming, drinks, iconic football shirts and vibes to create the ultimate celebration of new football culture.

The ?exclusive Nike Air Max 1 ’87 launches on September 29. Enter the draw via the size?launches app from 8am on September 23.
