We’re now completely through September and spooky season is certainly upon us. Shop fronts are soon to be adorned with skeletons, ghouls, and monsters, and parents across the nation are stocking up on chocolate and candy to hand out to lucky children in scary costumes! Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays of the year and a chance for people of all ages to kick back and enjoy a night of frightening fun.
Last year Nike ushered in the arrival of Halloween by releasing two brand new thematic colourways for much-loved silhouettes: the Nike Dunk Low and the Nike Presto! Each delivered its own unique stamp on the Halloween season, making use of creepy graphics, classic Halloween hues, or glow in the dark sections. Let’s take a quick look:
Nike Dunk Low PRM Halloween
The Nike Dunk Low delivers quintessential Nike every time. With the signature large swoosh found on Air Jordan 1s and the classic dimpled toe box, this silhouette is and will always be an iconic Nike sneaker. For their Halloween release Nike have fitted this Dunk Low out with a bright orange swoosh, tongue, and inner lining ending with a neat orange border around the collar. The rest of the colourway is in black and white, providing a great level of contrast. But this sneaker doesn’t reveal it’s truly dazzling details until the lights go out. Across the entire black section, stretching from the toe cap to the heel, eyes are scrawled in glow in the dark fabric across the sneaker! Barely visible against the black background during the day, night-time makes them emerge from the darkness!
Nike Air Presto Halloween
The Nike Air Presto silhouette brings a sportier appearance than the Dunk Low. Like the rest of the Air ranges, these sneakers have an angular look more reminiscent of football boots than the Dunk basketball sneakers. Keeping with the Halloween theme this sneaker displays a black, white, and orange colourway with beautiful details like the blazing orange spider embroidered onto the black fabric upper. The heel features a grey background with the same eye graphics that can be found on the Dunk Lows printed in black, for an eerie effect.
Both of these incredible spooky sneakers dropped on October 21st last year, just in time for Halloween. What fantastic released do you think Nike will have in store for us this year?
