Nike‘s skateboarding-focused Nike SB subdivision loves to celebrate Halloween, and part of its festive release slate for this year is a SB Dunk Low “Mummy.” It may only be July at the time of writing, but the “Mummy” is already making a strong case for the best Halloween sneaker of the year thanks to its ghoulishly good detailing and clever storytelling.

Uppers are wrapped in a rough-hewn, soft-toned gray fabric, a nod to the gauze mummies are shrouded in. Suede Swooshes take on a light blue shade, and the tongue’s Nike SB branding is done up in a Goosebumps-esque dripping green font. Though it’s hard to tell with utter certainty from the set of leaked images above, the heel appears to feature tear-away detailing — a potential indication, along with the upper’s criss-crossing stitching, that there’s a hidden layer underneath this low-cut SB Dunk‘s fabric folds. Insoles with a spooky pattern and glowing green midsoles/outsoles complete the look.

There’s currently no release date or pricing information for the Nike SB Dunk Low “Mummy.” However, as it’s a Halloween-themed release it’ll likely rise from the dead this October.
