Given that much of the world has spent the greater part of 2020 quarantined or under strict stipulations due to Covid-19, it may be difficult to grasp that the year if halfway done. Yes, the current calendar date demonstrates this, but so does the increasing number of Halloween-related footwear surfacing. The latest?: A Nike Air Trainer 3 inspired by Dracula.
While not tonal like a previously-seen Air Max 90 for the October 31st holiday, the ’90s silhouette unsurprisingly relies heavily on the color black. Muted red across the profile swooshes and upper eye-stays complement the dark hue, which is overlaid atop white tumbled leather. Branding on the tongue also indulges in the scarlet tone, and is accompanied by fang graphics; bats are embossed onto the heel. A rich purple joins the palette throughout the pair’s collar and inner lining, while also overtaking the sockliner, which features an image of the caped immortal himself. Underfoot, sole units forgo any Halloween-inspired motifs, but still indulge in most of the uppers’ theme-appropriate palette.
Enjoy a first look at this upcoming Air Trainer 3 here below, as you wait for pairs to hit Nike.com throughout October.
Elsewhere under the Swoosh umbrella, a brown leather Air Max 1 is on its way to retailers.
