The Nike Air Foamposite Pro ‘Halloween’ May Well be a Silver SkullRelease: 29 October 2020
Nike’s slew of Halloween-themed releases this year has so far ranged from classic horror character tributes to slimy motifs. However, this upcoming Air Foamposite Pro takes a wide berth of stereotypical inspirations, and instead opts for a bright colourway that ideally can be worn all year-round.
Fabricated in ‘Flat Silver’, the sheened surface highlights the malleable origins of Foamposite upper technology, revealing the top-to-bottom ridging running around the entire foot. Breaking up the metallic mid section is the massive moulded Swoosh that shows up in gloss black on the lateral side. Black precedes the other panels, dipping the leather eyestays and mesh tongue in matching noir. It’s also there underneath the outsoles, blending in with the gunmetal grey carbon fibre arch hardware. And finally, to make the Halloween connection, pumpkin orange accents extremities like the outsole Swoosh, pull tabs, tongue strip, and small Swoosh embroidery. Finally, there is a little bit of skull-and-crossbones detailing on the heel strips to signify this spooky season release.
The scariest thing about these Foams would be tearing up the court while wearing one of the Swoosh’s retrospectively clunkiest kicks. These Air Foamposite Pros release just days before Halloween, via selected Nike retailers on October 29.
