A Nod To Prefontaine On The Air Max 1

Date: July 14 2017

If you were collecting sneakers back in 2007, this release might ring some bells. The motif on these new Air Max 1s harks back to 07's classic ‘Skulls’ pack that paid homage to Steve Prefontaine. So named for the skull and crossbone borrowed from Pre's high school team logo, the OG 'Skulls' wore colourful uppers and speckled soles. This AM1's make-up, however, favours a pared-back approach with its mix of dark suede, leather, and a bone-white midsole that feels somewhat more fitting than the last. The skull logo itself isn’t the same as the OG's, but the subtle nod to Swoosh history is enough to pique any Airhead's interest.

The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Skulls’ is slated for a September release.
