Vans‘ recent collaborations have run the gamut from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure to the Vincent Van Gogh Museum, yielding a host of covetable sneakers inspired by wholly different industries. Now, the storied Californian brand is preparing to join forces with yet another beloved franchise: The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Recent Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter collaborations have seen Vans successfully translating the storied franchises into graphic footwear and apparel; expect The Nightmare Before Christmas goods to similarly repurpose fan-favorite characters and imagery, like Sally, Oogi Boogie and Jack Skellington. The brief teaser uploaded by the sportswear brand even showcases Skellington’s pet ghost dog, Zero.

A financial and critical success immediately upon release in 1993, Tim Burton’s playfully dark stop-motion musical hasn’t lost any popularity in the ensuing decades. Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara and Paul Reubens (best known as Pee-wee Herman) all contributed voice work to The Nightmare Before Christmas, though critics mostly lauded director Henry Selick’s attention to detail, which garnered the film an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects nomination. Disney consistently re-released The Nightmare Before Christmas in various formats over the years, eventually making it the first stop-motion film to be converted into 3D.

Sign up for notifications about The Nightmare Before Christmas collaboration on Vans’ website and expect more news to arrive ahead of October 31.

Most recently, Vans rejoined NOAH for a seasonal collaboration.
