Ghostly greetings, fam! Welcome to the spooky rendition of sneaker releases: Halloween shoes! It’s all a bunch of hocus pocus if you don’t cop yourself some scary-ass sneakers! You’re never too old to dress up for Halloween – especially with awesome kicks!
The only reason Octobers exist is to instill our sense of fear and excitement. Of course, as sneakerheads, the only things we fear are Ls! For real. On Halloween, we like to decorate with pictures of the OOS page and other people’s S/Os. It’s good for motivation! It’s also a good reminder to get yourself a proper-working sneaker bot this year. You’ll definitely need one after checking out this list anyways! So, if you don’t already one a sneaker bot, click on the button below. It has a list of all the best bots in the business – perfect to get your copping game on!
Memorable Spooks of the Past
So, although this year doesn’t seem to boast too many Halloween shoes, we’ve still got lots of memorable ones. Of course, all of them are courtesy of the Swoosh who seems to enjoy this creepy time of year! This includes:
– The Nike Air Force 1 Skeleton. This release featured 3 drops: white/gray in 2018, black/gray in 2019 and bright orange in 2020. The most prominent and coolest thing about these kicks was the x-ray skeleton foot on its sides!
– Air Max 97 Halloween Slime in 2020. A perfect sneaker for a slimy-monster kinda Halloween! It even featured glow-in-the-dark slime on the black canvas. We guess that Nike assumed we’ll all be walking in the dark on Halloween.
– Nike SB Dunk Low Night of Mischief in 2019. These Halloween shoes SCREAMED spooky vibes! It had purple cobwebs and spiders all around with Jack-O’-Lantern face perforations on the toe box.
– Kyrie 4 Halloween of 2018 also took into the slimy section of Halloween. The vibrant neon-green outsoles made it look like you just stepped into some radioactive slime! It even had a mutant slimy Swoosh!
The Spookiest Halloween Shoes
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble… Sneaker cop and let the cashback DOUBLE! We like the sound of that! The sole purpose of Halloween shoes is to flex the special release and FLIP them for more. You see, a lot of people will probably be too “scared” of running bots on Halloween. Too afraid to take a good Halloween risk. But, that just works better for us! More flips, more money on the resale market!
And, this year’s Halloween shoes are mostly brought to you by Nike! Big surprise. But, so far, we’ve only got two creepy crawlers set to release this October from the Swoosh. And, we’ve got some Forum action from Adidas! So, make sure to check them out!
Nike Dunk Low PRM

Retail Price: $120
Dunks are dead? More like Dunks are BACK from the dead for Halloween! The Nike Dunk Low PRM is one of those Halloween shoes that emit intense creepy vibes. They’ve literally got glow-in-the-dark rubber outsoles and creepy glow-in-the-dark eyes all over the uppers. Already giving us the heebie-jeebies!

Nike Dunk Low SB Mummy
Halloween shoes literally back from the dead, AGAIN? The new Nike Dunk Low SB Mummy is ALL the way creepy. If mummies wore sneakers, then they’d definitely dig this one! It features teared-up uppers revealing a bluish Swoosh.
And, of course, the glow-in-the-dark outsoles, heel tab, tongue label, and spider on the left toe! We’re starting to see that glow-in-the-dark is Nike’s Halloween trademark. Finally, to add to the Egyptian theme, we’ve got the Eye of Horus on the heels! SPOOKY!
Adidas Forum Low Dracula
Release Date: October 2021
Retail Price: NA
Do you think Dracula would feel like rocking some Halloween shoes after laying eyes on this Forum? He honestly might just be into it! The new Adidas Forum Low Dracula features bat fur on the toe box, mid-foot panels, and even heel overlays. And, for the creepy color-blocking, we’ve got red tris on the Three Stripes and lockdown strap. But, the coolest part happens to be the shimmering silver lace dubraes that look like count’s fangs! And, in true Halloween fashion, the outsoles have a green pattern, which we assume are glow-in-the-dark!
So, that’s basically all we’ve got so far for Halloween shoes of this year! We hope you have a pretty creepy Halloween! And, if you’re not sold on these kicks, luckily for you, there’s a lot coming up! But, make sure to keep it locked on our sneaker blog!
