Nike has a long and storied history of conjuring up Halloween-themed sneakers. Like trick-or-treaters, silhouettes get dressed in extravagant costumes ranging from lighthearted to bone-chilling, all in the spirit of the season.

This year, Nike is slated to release a hearse-load of spooky new treats to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve. Among the sinister styles are the Air Trainer 3 “New Orchid,” the Air Force 1 Skeleton “Orange,” and the Air Foamposite Pro “Halloween.”
While the former two releases feature traditional Halloween detailing, the Air Foamposite Pro “Halloween” makes you guess what it’s supposed to be.
This enigmatic colorway of the Air Foamposite Pro features a silver molded shell upper, with contrast black leather trim running along the eyestays. The medial side is embellished with a large, glossy black Swoosh. The sneaker is finished with a black rubber midsole and outsole, which house a carbon fiber shank plate.
Not sounding very Halloween-y, is it? Well, the devil’s in the details. The seasonal spice comes in the form of “Electro Orange” accents. The pumpkin-esque hue appears on the tongue’s decorative piping, heel branding, outsole branding, and pull tabs. Additionally, the latter features “Foamposite” lettering, with the second ‘O’ replaced by a skull and crossbones.
Though it’s still unclear as to what the sneaker is dressed as, it will surely be in contention for “best dressed” at the costume party. The Air Foamposite Pro “Halloween” is set to release on October 29th on JimmyJazz.com for a retail price of $230. Visit the site early to secure your pair.
Styling the Air Foamposite Pro “Halloween” is scary simple – accent the sneaker with horror-themed styles. For the first outfit, start with the Friday the 13th Crew Neck Sweatshirt from DeKryptic. This spooky sweatshirt features a rhinestone accented Jason Voorhees graphic that matches well with the primarily silver sneaker. Complete the look with the Nylon Cargo Pants from Decibel. The tapered ankle cuffs accentuate the sneaker’s unique shape, and allow it to stand out.
For the second outfit, start with Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger Hoodie from DeKryptic. This hooded sweatshirt features an all-over Nightmare on Elm Street graphic, and fits like a dream. Finish the outfit with the 222 Banda Disso Joggers from Kappa. These black joggers match the hoodie perfectly, and allow the sneakers to shine. These joggers also feature reflective 3M taping running down the sides – perfect for Halloween fit-pics.
