Brand: Vans x The Nightmare Before Christmas
Model: Sk8-Hi, Authentic, Old-Skool, and Slip-On
Key Features: All four classic Vans silhouettes carry the expected features updated with The Nightmare Before Christmas-themed graphics. Additional details arrive in the Sk8-Hi, which features black suede toes and tongues and the Slip-On has a plastic bow-tie appliqué on the upper.
Release Date: October 4
Editor’s Notes: Vans has linked up with Disney to give Tim Burton’s classic stop-motion animation The Nightmare Before Christmas a new lease of life, turning four classic shoe silhouettes into tributes to the iconic movie.
The recently-released teaser images reveal a variety of playful graphics spread across the Sk8-Hi, Authentic, Old-Skool, and Slip-On sneakers. Most feature character illustrations, depicting the likes of Sally, Zero, and the Zombie Band. The homage to Jack Skellington is probably the most head-turning, with the entire Slip-On transformed into an appliquéd and pin-striped interpretation of his character.
These spooky kicks will drop just in time for Halloween on October 4 at van retailers and its online shop. Check out the collection in the gallery above.
