After getting a look at the Blazer Mid “Spider Web,” we are now learning about another one of Nike‘s upcoming Halloween releases. Drawing from Wes Craven‘s A Nightmare on Elm Street, the Air Max 95 “Freddy Krueger” is inspired by the spirit of a serial killer.
Dressed in a mix of “Velvet Brown,” “University Red” and “Team Red,” the upper of the shoe is constructed of mesh and canvas to replicate Krueger’s sweater. Accents on the base include grey suede toecaps, checkered tongue and metallic silver overlays speckled with red in reference to Freddy’s favorite razor glove. Branding comes in the form of “AIRMAX” tongue badges, small heel Swooshes, “Nike Air” debossing at the rear and bloody Swoosh printed insoles. Elevating the shoe are light brown midsoles red Air units paired with contrasting black rubber outsoles.
Check out the Nike Air Max 95 “Freddy Krueger” above and look for the Halloween themed sneakers to release sometime this October.
