It looks like the “Rebel Skulls” motif is getting a full-blown Air Max pack, as we spot a third sneaker sporting the grim look to go along with the Air Max 1 and Air Max 95: the Air Max 90. Recalling the Rebel Skull theme from a 2007 duo of the Air Max 1 inspired by running legend Steve Prefontaine’s Marshfield High School Pirates team logo, the new additions go for a decidedly more dark look, featuring all-black uppers in premium suede and leather. Just like the Air Max 1 and Air Max 95 within the pack, the Air Max 90 displays the skull and crossbones logo in silver thread on the tongue with additional silver detailing and a contrasting white midsole.
The“Rebel Skulls” is an homage to Steve Prefontaine and his Marshfield High School, which had the skull and crossbones as school logo. This upcoming September release of the Air Max 95 “Skulls” achieves that pirate-friendly look as it utilizes the logo on the tongue while opting for a tonal black upper and metallic silver detailing. It’s is likely that more “Skulls” editions of other Air Max shoes are on the way, so stay tuned.
