NIKE AIR MAX 1 WEEK PART 2

Next up on the Classics Revisited list of icons is a tribute – in the form of one of Nike’s most historic running sneakers – to Steve Prefontaine, the legendary track-star that cemented Nike’s roots in the firm foundation of running history. Steve Prefontaine was a nationwide standout in the sport and served as one of the proteges for University of Oregon track coach and Nike founder Bill Bowerman, but Prefontaine’s untimely death at the age of 24 stopped the legend too early and too soon. In 2007, Nike Sportswear paid homage to Prefontaine with the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Skulls’ Pack; the shoe was built with leather, suede, and ripstop nylon uppers and featured a unique embroidered logo of a skull and crossbones on the heel – the team logo of Prefontaine’s alma mater Marshfield High School. Both colorways were released in early 2007 and are widely recognized as the ‘Skulls’ Pack, although the nickname of ‘Prefontaine Pack’ should very much be in the mix! Check out both colorways below and stay tuned for yet another Air Max 1 classic tomorrow.
