A Vans x The Nightmare Before Christmas collection is coming and we’re ready

  • We’ve been absolutely spoilt this year when it comes to epic footwear, from colour-changing Converse to mermaid Dr Martens. And Vans have been working hard, too, masterminding some truly wonderful collaborations like the Vans x Frida Kahlo collection and the Harry Potter x Vans range.

    Now, they’re releasing something pretty epic in time for the festive season.

    The trainer brand have created a Vans x The Nightmare Before Christmas line for AW19 and announced the news on Instagram.

    They wrote: ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas x Vans coming soon. vans.com/nightmare.’

    The short video includes a purple chequered background (a hint that a twist on the classic slip-on will be a part of the collection?) and sees a bat fluttering around with Jack Skellington’s ghost dog, Zero, also making an appearance.

    Previous collaborations have included a range of characters, prints and styles so we’re going to guess that this one will be no different. The Frida Kahlo line used the artist’s most famous paintings, and the Harry Potter range incorporated the four Hogwarts house designs on the iconic shoes.

    Details about the Vans x The Nightmare Before Christmas collaboration are sparse, and the brand is yet to announce a release date, images of what we’ll be able to get our hands on, or prices.

    The website isn’t giving anything away, simply asking people to sign up for the newsletter so that they can be alerted when the products are available.

    We’re ready and waiting.
