Hands down, Halloween is one of the best holidays. You can dress up and go out, or if you have kids, go trick or treating. For the sneaker custom community, that means cooking up some Halloween-themed projects. Every year, the #angelusdirect page showcases some of the most creative customs. Here are some of our favorite Halloween sneakers from this year.
These Evil Dead Foamposites were done by @revivecustoms. The 1981 horror film is a cult classic, bringing the cabin-in-the-woods genre of horror films to a gruesome new level. These Foams are based on the Book of the Dead, called the Naturom Demonto in the film.
Surviving the mayhem was the character Ash Williams played by Bruce Campbell, who quickly became one of horror’s greatest characters.
Next, we have these Freddy Krueger Air Jordan III’s by @chillsbarkley.
Back in the fall of 1984, Wes Craven’s The Nightmare on Elm Street unleashed one of the most terrifying horror villains on audiences. Freddy was the stuff of nightmares, literally offing a squad of helpless teenagers in their dreams.
Another pair that caught our eye was these Walking Dead Air Jordan V’s by @sneakerfairy.
For the past seven seasons, fans have watched their Rick and his gang of survivors battle mindless hordes, marauding militias, insane villains, and (sometimes) family drama! Ironically, the first episode aired on Halloween night back in 2010.
This last pair, Air Max 95’s were done by @abstracked_customz, were one of the most horrifying of the bunch.
While not necessarily themed after a specific movie, they like they might be on the feet of Leatherface, the terrorizer from the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
Until next year, keep up those customs and be sure to tag #angelusdirect for a feature. And if you haven’t checked it out yet, or sale ends tonight at 11:59 PM EST. Use the code SPOOKY20 and stock up on your favorite items.
