Air Max 95 Receives A Freddy Krueger Inspired Makeover
Nike gives a sneak peek into their Halloween collection with a new Air Max 95 inspired by 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' serial killer 'Freddy Krueger'.
Nike has always been a fan of Halloween. Over the years, the footwear giant has released several halloween themed collections of its best silhouettes and even though the celebration is almost two months away, Nike has already started teasing some of the shoes from this year’s collection. The most captivating of the lot is the Freddy Krueger inspired Air Max 95.
The Velvet Brown, University Red and Team Red colours, however, have been dialled down a bit in comparison to the source of the inspiration behind them. The shoes also feature grey suede toe caps and a blood splatter look on the tongue with interesting silver overlays that are a reference to Krueger’s horrifying razor gloves.
The blood drip/splatter look is also carried on to the heel tab which sports the traditional Nike branding. Apart from this blood red swooshes can been seen on multiple places like the heel and insole.
Complementing the upper are the light brown midsoles with red Air units and black rubber outsoles.
With no official details regarding the exact date or price, an estimate places the sneakers to drop sometime in October just before Halloween. Stay tuned to this space for all further information.
