Halloween provides plenty of thematic inspiration for sneaker colourways. Over the years, brands routinely have horrifying releases to mark the event – both proper scary executions and absolute horror shows. Despite the corporate enthusiasm to turn what seems like every single observance into a festive footwear drop, independent customisers and design houses are showing the big brands how it's done. Spookiness is the theme here: think ghosts, gore, and anything else your mother told you to shield your eyes from.
Reader beware – you're in for a scare!
