Vans Announces New Horror Inspired Shoes Coming This October

Vans has announced that they will be making shoes inspired by 4 classic horror films: It, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, and Friday the 13th.

It looks like they will feature two lo-tops and two hi-tops. I am a big fan of slasher films and these seem to be right up my alley as the designs are well… KILLER! You can expect to see these shoes released in October.

The It sneakers feature a classic checkerboard pattern, which might not make one immediately think of Pennywise the Clown. But those red balloons sure do. And written on the bottom are the words “You’ll float too.” Meanwhile, The Shining shoes feature the poster art from the original 1980 release. Interestingly, they didn’t go for the Overlook Hotel carpet pattern which would have been interesting. But they do have the words “Redrum” scribbled on them .

The A Nightmare on Elm Street shoes come in Freddy Krueger’s distinctive red and green striped sweater pattern. And what looks like some drops of blood. And finally, the Friday the 13th shoes showcase Jason Voorhees’ iconic hockey mask, along with the film’s logo.

The collab shoes were announced via Twitter and all of these horror franchises are associated with Warner Bros. films, so it looks like Vans created these shoes in a special arrangement with them.
