This new Vans collection has arrived just in time for Halloween, inspired by a cult classic - Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas. With a 10-piece footwear offering complimented by a range of apparel and accessories, Vans designers have captured a number of Jack Skellington's best moments. A Nightmare Before Christmas is of course a perfect Halloween movie, with this 1993 stop-motion cult classic directed by Henry Selick, who went on to helm James and the Giant Peach and the overlooked classic, Coraline. 

Arguably the most iconic scene, Jack’s Lament is featured on the Sk8-Hi with each of the four panels showcasing a frame from Jack’s walk through the Halloween Town cemetery. A special message that reads “Nice Work, Bone Daddy” on the inside collar completes the design.

The Pumpkin King’s ghostly suit including cat and bat wing applique is mimicked on the Classic Slip-On, while Dr. Finkelstein’s master humanoid creation, Sally, receives her very own Era Stacked silhouette. Inspired by her very creation, each style is collaged with various prints from her dress while the Era Stacked features hand-stitched detailed as a nod to Sally’s unique beauty.

The Classic Slip-On and long sleeve tee will showcase emblematic elements from Oogie Boogie’s underground lair, including dice and skull graphics on the sidewall and sleeves of each silhouette. Honouring his place in the moonlit night, fans will find Oogie Boogie’s shadow peeking from the sidewall of the Classic Slip-On. Not to be forgotten, Oogie Boogie’s trio of henchmen – Lock, Shock and Barrel can be found on the Old Skool.

The Vans and Disney Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” collection is available to shop in Vans retail stores now.
