Easter is coming and that means two things: plenty of chocolate and Easter-themed sneaker releases! Over the years, brands have celebrated the holiday in a big way, with various chocolate-themed drops, some becoming serious fan-favourites, such as the 2005 Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’.

We are celebrating every chocoholic’s favourite holiday by looking back at the best Chocolate-themed releases of all time.

Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’ (2005)

When we think of the most iconic Easter release of all time we think of the 2005 Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’. It boasted a full patent leather upper, with each panel rocking different pastel hues and special egg tongue graphic. Twelve years later in 2017 out of nowhere Nike dug into their archives and decided to retro the colourway. Select European retailers dropped their stock on April 17, Easter Monday.

Nike Air Force 1 ‘Easter Egg’ (2006)

The year was 2006 and many sneakerheads were gearing up to wear their 2005 ‘Easter Eggs’ to the Sunday family feast however they were thrown a curveball! On January 1, Nike decided to drop a follow up AF-1 also called ‘Easter Egg’. It still utilised the patent leather look but different Easter pastel tones were chosen such as purples, greens and yellows.

Yeezy BOOST 750 ‘Chocolate’ (2016)

Back in 2016 who didn’t want a taste of the sweet ‘Chocolate’ Yeezy BOOST 750s? Officially, this bad boy was dubbed Light Brown/Gum however fans affectionately dubbed these the ‘Chocolates’ due to their tonal brown usage. For a while, this colourway became a staple Yeezy design, incorporating earthy tones and embodying that era of Kanye’s unmistakable design language.

Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD 'Chocolate’ (2020)

During the peak Pharrell x adidas era, Hu NMDs were a hot hype commodity, however in recent years their collaborative endeavours have begun to plateau in popularity. That doesn’t mean the colourways haven’t been hitting, because in 2020 the duo hit us with the ‘Chocolate’! Equipped with the choccy-coloured BOOST midsole and brown PrimeKnit, they’re the perfect comfy Easter morning heater.

You can’t talk about Easter sneakers and not include last year’s Social Status x Nike Dunk ‘Chocolate Milk’ in the conversation. These bad boys were inventive, weirdly cool and struck a chord with us here at the SF office. Those chocolate brown tones also make them the perfect shoe to bust out for Easter lunch!

Nike Air Max 180 'Easter Egg’ (2006)

In 2006, the Air Force 1 wasn’t the only silhouette from Team Swoosh’s arsenal that helped celebrate Easter! The Air Max 180 also received a specialised colourway that was similar to its AF-1 predecessor. Our favourite part was the Easter egg tongue graphic.

Bad Bunny x adidas Forum Buckle Low Easter Egg

Bad Bunny x adidas Forum Buckle Low ‘Easter Egg’ (2021)

There was a period in 2021 when Bad Bunny and adidas’ relationship was thriving, with a slew of collaborative projects either leaking or hitting shelves. Birthed in April last year was a Forum Low dubbed ‘Easter Egg’, a play using the rappers name! Can you imagine if Bad Bunny brought the Easter Eggs this year?

Nike Dunk High ‘Easter’ (2007)

Rounding it out is somewhat of an Easter rarity, the Nike Dunk High ‘Easter’! This tonal brown joint with polka-dot midsoles released for Easter in 2007, and up until recently remained in obscurity to some younger 'heads. Why has it resurfaced and resale prices skyrocketed? Well, because Travis Scott wore them! We bet there are some sneakerheads kicking themselves because they sold their pair for $50 back in the day.
