Editor's Note: Vans has teamed up with Disney to provide Tim Burton's classic stop-motion animation, The Nightmare Before Christmas, New Life, transformed four classic shoe silhouettes in homage to the iconic movie.
The recently released teaser image reveals several fun graphics scattered across the Sk8-Hi, Authentic, Old-Skool, and Slip-On shoes. Most feature character illustrations, depicting people like Sally, Zero, and the Zombie Band. The tribute to Jack Skellington is perhaps the one that attracts the most attention, since the entire Slip-On is transformed into an interpretation of appliques and stripes of the character.
An exact release date hasn't been announced yet, but it can be safe to assume that this creepy kick will drop just in time for Halloween.
