Original Story: Throughout recent years, Nike has celebrated holidays such as Halloween with thematic sneaker releases. Last year, this included the Dunk Low with “Scream Green” accents joining “Phantom” detailing in a subtle-yet-recognizable take on the spooky season. In 2021, the Hypebeast team assembled a thorough list of the holiday’s best kicks, which may see a new addition with this year’s newly-previewed SB Dunk High.
For Halloween 2023, Nike has prepared a “Sweet Tooth” colorway that takes on the appearance of candy corn — a treat typically associated with this frightful time of year. Its upper features a gradient effect that goes from white at the toe to orange at the midfoot and yellow around the heel. Orange Swooshes outlined with a mustard hue add to the theme alongside the toe box including a bite mark. A thematic tongue tag includes a warning that states “DO NOT TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS” at the interior. Rounding things out, the sockliner displays an all-over print with candy corn spread throughout.
While no release details regarding the Nike SB Dunk High “Sweet Tooth” have been shared just yet, you can expect this pair to hit shelves in October via Nike and select skate shops to coincide with Halloween. Stay tuned for official information and imagery pertaining to this much-anticipated colorway.
