Yesterday, Vans announced that a collaboration with Tim Burton’s ‘The Night Before Christmas‘ was in the works, and just one day later we’re getting a first look at the full range. Images courtesy of Sneaker Politics, the four-piece collection is chock full of details inspired by the 1993 cult classic, and here’s what you need to know!
Taking on the Californian imprint’s most popular skate silhouettes, if you’re a fan of TNBC, then every model will be a must cop. The Sk8-Hi is printed with Sally, Zero, and the Zombie Band on both sides, while the Slip-On is all dressed up in Jack Skellington’s signature cat-shaped bowtie.
In terms of the Authentic, mismatched green and red uppers feature Lock, Stock, and Barrel across the lateral while the medial is illustrated with their traps and toys, and finally, the Old Skool is covered in a spooky checkerboard print that’s filled to the brim with references from the animated musical.
An insanely hyped collection that’s as fire as it is nostalgic, the Vans x The Nightmare Before Christmas collection is scheduled to hit shelves next month just before Halloween. Which pair are you feeling the most? Let us know, and keep your eyes peeled for more release info as it develops!
