Nosferatu Approved: The Nike Air Trainer 3 ‘Dracula’ Awakens For HalloweenRelease: 21 October 2020
Last month, images of this vampiric Nike Air Trainer 3 began doing the rounds on the Internet, with chatter regarding a potential Halloween release. And Nike have now confirmed a late-October release date for these ghoulish gallopers from the crypt.
There’s some classic colour-blocking going on here. The bold two-toned upper of black suede and perforated white leather creates a strong foundation for blood-red splatter on the midsole accent, emphasised further by the black-to-red gradient lateral Swoosh. Underfoot, the AT3’s strong outsole design is drenched in more claret, again adding to the stark contrast against the upper.
The major details already create a horrifically good package, but it’s the little things that really seal the deal. Take a look at the tongue label. It’s the usual square Nike Air Trainer 3 tag – with a toothy fanged addition. Inside, old mate Nosferatu (or Dracula, or the Count, etc.) deliberately appears upside down on the insoles because, you know, that’s how vampires do. Lining the insides is a deep shade of purple, tying in nicely with Nike’s historical Halloween-themed releases.
Nike will release this Air Trainer 3 on October 21, which means you’ll have the perfect pair of candy-swindling kicks right on time for Halloween.
