A top 10 Halloween sneakers for 2023

October is most likely the favourite month for fans of horror, creeps, and monsters. After all, October 31 is Halloween, the one day in the month when everyone heads out the door in terrifying outfits. Whether you're planning to pass by the doors for "trick or treat", or need an outfit for a Halloween party – here are the 10 best sneakers for Halloween.

Nike Air Max 95 'Freddy Krueger'

A very appropriate sneaker for Halloween is the Nike Air Max 95 'Freddy Krueger'. The sneaker takes its inspiration from a character from the movie A Nightmare on Elm Street, named Freddy Krueger. The colours of the Air Max 95 hint at the monstrous character's outfit. In addition, with its sleek design, the sneaker is also great to wear on any other day of the year.

A Bathing Ape Bape Sta Low 'Halloween'

Should you be looking for a sneaker that fits more into the Halloween theme, the A Bathing Ape Bape Sta Low 'Halloween' might be for you. The pair comes in the signature colours of Halloween, think orange and green. The overlays on the sneaker have spiderwebs printed into the leather.

Air Jordan 1 High 'Shattered Backboard' 3.0

The Air Jordan 1 High 'Shattered Backboard 3.0' is a true classic. The colorway is named after Michael Jordan's slam dunk with which he shattered the backboard during a tournament in Italy in 1985. Although the sneaker was not designed specifically for Halloween, the colours of the pair are very suitable for a stylish Halloween outfit.

Alife x ASICS Gel-Lyte III 'Green Monster'

In 2007, Alife and ASICS came together for a very special release. Especially for Halloween, the Gel-Lyte III model received a monstrous design. The sneaker has a bright green upper with enlarged eyes on the lacing. The serrations in the midsole make it look like the sneaker has teeth. In short: an ideal sneaker for trick or treat.

Nike SB Dunk Low 'Freddy Krueger'

Perhaps the most iconic Nike SB Dunk ever made; is the 'Freddy Kreuger' colorway from 2007. The sneaker has a creepy look. The upper takes inspiration from Freddy's outfit, with blood splatter and all. There are about thirty copies of the colorway, due to legal issues between Nike and New Line Cinema. A sneaker with a price tag, for sure, but perfect for Halloween.

adidas Forum Mod Low 'Jack O’Lantern'

An eye-catching sneaker appearing this year is the adidas Forum Mod Low 'Jack O'Lantern'. The sneaker has an autumnal look and comes with a pumpkin emblem on the heel. The upper is made of leather, suede, and burlap. Additional elements on the tongue and heel give the Halloween-inspired sneaker a chic look - if that is possible during Halloween.

Nike SB Dunk Low 'Mummy'

At first glance, the 2021 Nike SB Dunk Low 'Mummy' looks like a basic sneaker. However, the midsole glows in the dark, as do the eyes on the heel. The upper is wrapped in beige cotton, reinforcing the idea of a mummy. In our opinion, perhaps the most stylish horror sneaker.

Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Frankenstein'

The Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Frankenstein' has a rather striking look. The sneaker is inspired by the fictional character Frankenstein, who has been one of the most famous creeps of all time since 1818. The upper of the sneaker is shiny patent leather. Red details on the tongue and toe cap contrast well with the green. The black midsole completes the pair.

Vans Sk8-Hi Horror Pack 'Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger'

The Vans Sk8-Hi Horror Pack 'Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger' is the third, also the last, sneaker that takes inspiration from the fictional character from the movie Nightmare on Elm Street. The upper combines colours of grey and red that hint at Freddy's shirt. The blood splatters all over the upper giving the sneaker a horror-like look.

Nike Air Force 1 Skeleton QS 'Black'

We conclude our top picks Halloween sneakers with the Nike Air Force 1 Skeleton QS 'Black'. The sneaker appeared on shelves in 2019 and has appeared in several colorways before that. A print of a foot is placed across the upper. The outsole is glow-in-the-dark. In short, the ideal sneaker for October 31.
