The footwear collection features 10 different styles, based around six classic Vans silhouettes. The Sk8-Hi silhouette is reworked with a nod to Jack’s Lament, one of the film’s most famous scenes, with panels showing Jack’s walk through the Halloween Town cemetery and “Nice Work, Bone Daddy” written inside the collar. Additionally the Sk8-Hi also releases in a design themed around Sally’s potion bottles in the movie.
Other silhouettes include the classic Slip-On, with one design including applique batwing and another with a reference to Oogie Boogie’s shadow, as well as the Era Stacked — in a patchwork colorway dedicated to Sally — and the Old Skool, with one design honoring Oogie Boogie’s three henchman. Rounding out the collection is the ComfyCush Authentic, which sees The Nightmare Before Christmas characters on a checkerboard backdrop, and two sets of slides.
Alongside the sneakers, the collaboration also encompasses a range of apparel and accessories. Standout pieces include Oogie Boogie-themed coach jackets and long sleeves, as well as various graphic-printed socks, caps and backpacks.
Take a look at The Nightmare Before Christmas x Vans full collection in the gallery above, and expect the collection to arrive at select stockists and the Vans web store on October 4.
