With Halloween right around the corner, it’s easy to have pumpkins, ghosts and trick-or-treating on the brain. Nike, however, is switching gears and focusing on Day of the Dead – Día de los Muertos. This Mexican holiday celebrates loved ones, as families welcome the souls of their deceased relatives for a unique reunion celebrated from October 31 – November 2. Celebrate alongside with the latest holiday drops from Nike, including Day of the Dead-inspired sneakers including the Nike Cortez Basic SE, Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 Premium and Nike Air Max 95 SE.
Nike Cortez Basic SE – Day of the Dead
Bright orange stitching and a floral-patterned floral sockliner nod to the Mexican marigold, while an ornate Swoosh mimics traditional Día de los Muertos patterning on this Nike Cortez Basic SE. Painted in a Black/White/University Red/Kinetic Green colorway, this Cortez features everything you know and love from the original: a durable suede upper, lightweight foam midsole and iconic traction outsole.
Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 Premium
Inspiration draws from Day of the Dead calacas – skeletons – on the Nike Air Force 1 Low ’07 Premium. The ever-recognizable silhouette is decorated in an all-white leather upper with faint calacas patterning and bright pops of pink, yellow, blue and green piping details. This signature White/White/Black/Kinetic Green colorway teams up with a classic construction for a standout sneaker that brings the heat.
Nike Air Max 95 SE
The Nike Air Max 95 SE gets an ornate upgrade with layers of traditional patterning celebrating Day of the Dead. Suede and fabric combine for a detailed upper that resembles cracked leather and doily-like mesh and features faint patterning throughout for low-key style. This special edition is dressed in an Anthracite/Black/Cool Grey/White colorway and boasts even more Día de los Muertos detailing on the insole.
