You'll die for these skull & crossbone trainers

Minus all the murdering and looting, pirates were cool, and pretty much the original trendsetters with their beards and oversized hats. Their influence on the style world was so strong that their presence can still be felt in modern times, especially through this new skull and crossbones trainer collab between mastermind JAPAN and adidas Originals.

Cult brand mastermind JAPAN has placed its signature skull and crossbones print on both the adidas NMD XR1 and the hi-top Tubular Instinct in a black and white colour combo, with the first boasting a Primeknit upper and protective cage overlay, with the latter showcasing a luxurious leather, as well as large skull branding and zip detailing at the heel.

There's no specific release date announced just yet, but expect them to hit retailers in autumn
