Correct me if I’m wrong, but this has got to be the first time that a sportswear company has ever collaborated with the horror genre. I just wished it had happened sooner – these kicks are frickin’ cool.
Part of the Nike SB "Horror Pack", which also includes these Dawn of The Dead inspired Nike Airs, this pair of SB Dunk Los take their colour scheme from Freddy Kruger, including gruesome "open-wound" inner-soles resembling the supernatural child-killer’s skin, and red and black striped uppers, which technically should be red and green (sorry, I’m a bit of a pedant when it comes to films).
These aren’t released until around November and you’ll have to try your damnedest to get hold of a pair – there are only a few Nike SB stockists in the UK. Slam City Skates in Covent Garden will be getting them in, but tell me that they’ll be in extremely limited numbers. Watch this space for more news on these truly evil trainers.
