Halloween is here! Some people love dressing up, and some just want to view today as just another day. Regardless, of how you treat today, there are some notable sneakers out there that embody this holiday. Check out our favorite Halloween friendly sneakers.
Nike SB Dunk Low “Freddy Krueger”
These are hands down my favorite Halloween sneakers. They’re creepy! They represent everything that a spooky Halloween should be! Oh, and they pay homage to the villain of nightmares. They come complete with most of the design being that of the striped sweater worn by Freddy. Details of the shoe include blood spatter, as they should.
Nike Dunk High SB “Jason Voorhees”
These are also inspired of one of our favorite horror film antagonists. The Friday The 13th movie franchise introduced audiences to Jason Voorhees, a hockey mask wearing, machete carrying psychopath that to enjoys terrorizing people everywhere. The sneakers feature a colorway inspired by the character. The white is inspired by the Detroit Red Wings hockey mask that he wears and the red is cued from the massive amount of blood that is shed when he attacks. The red toe box will fade over time, revealing a different color.
Vans Glow In The Dark Skeleton
The Vans classic slip-on got a spooky reboot for these Halloween inspired kicks. The shoes feature black canvas upper and the traditional white sole with skeleton graphics on the top which mimic a foot. Did we mention the best part? The skeleton bones glow in the dark!
Nike SB Blazer “Blood Splatter”
These shoes are just plain creepy. They feature white canvas print with a red blood splatter print, and a grey swoosh to set the shoe off. These are perfect for Halloween or with your everyday look, if you don’t mind people thinking that you’re Dexter or work in a slaughter house.
