Vans shoes stays relevant as always with a new pop culture collaboration just in time for Halloween. If you love Tim Burton, chances are you’re absolutely obsessed with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now considered a classic, this film’s characters and imagery are iconic. Now, you’ll find them on Vans new shoes.
No Nightmare Before Christmas inspired line would be complete without Jack Skellington and Sally. Are you ready to wear the Pumpkin King?
Our favorite ghost-dog, Zero appears in the Instagram tease along with a spooky, black bat. The post leaves more questions than answers.
Will there be Oogie Boogie shoes? Will Vans release a Dr. Finkelstein hat? Will there be Lock, Shock, and Barrel apparel?
We weren’t the only ones with questions. Twitter users could barely contain their curiosity about the collaboration.
Vans, clever as ever, is keeping the nightmare alive by teasing all the grownup goths about their favorite childhood film. They are brilliant at low-key trolling. After a Twitter user Tweeted a well-known lyric from the film at Vans, “What… is… this…” Vans playfully responded with a gif of Jack Skellington singing, “My hopes, my dreams, my fantasies!”
One thing is certain, Vans has a loyal fanbase. Because of their frequent collaborations and creative approach to branding, it will be super exciting to see them partner with a Disney property. The Nightmare Before Christmas has its own, equally loyal fanbase. When the two worlds collide, it could be a beautiful thing.
A clever Twitter user already predicts the inevitable. Tweeting a gif, “Shut up & Take My Money,” it’s clear we all need to go ahead and start budgeting for whatever cool stuff Vans has coming our way.
