After announcing the collaboration only one day ago, detailed imagery of Vans‘ The Nightmare Before Christmas collaboration has surfaced.The four-piece collection includes some of Vans’ most-familiar skate silhouettes, elevated with a healthy dose of color and thematic detailing.

A Sk8-Hi, Authentic, Old-Skool and Slip-On have all received The Nightmare Before Christmas makeovers, with plenty of thoughtful touches hidden throughout. For instance, the Authentic, already overloaded with a collage of TNBC characters atop the canvas upper, features a subtle Easter Bunny print hidden inside the sockliner. Similarly, the Sk8-Hi sports prints of Sally, Zero and the Zombie Band on each side, with the sax player’s classic “Nice work, bone daddy” line emblazoned inside the leather heel.

Elsewhere, the Authentics offer bold yellow and red tones beneath a lateral side patch of Lock, Stock and Barrel, with their traps and toys printed on the opposite side. Black suede toes and tongues mirror the detailing on the Sk8-Hi. Finally, the Slip-On features a plastic appliqué of Jack Skellington’s bowtie, complete with matching stripes surrounding the white canvas uppers and black suede heel. All the shoes sport red Vans branding atop the tongue and/or heel patches, with a black swirl printed beneath.

Expect them to officially launch next month for $70 USD apiece ($75 USD for the Sk8-Hi).

 In honor of influential record label Ghostly International’s 20 years in the business, Vans is serving up a special pair of classic silhouettes, reimagined with thematic details. “The chance to design shoes with [Vans] is a dream come true,” says Ghostly founder and creative director Sam Valenti, underlining the synchronized mindset that fuels this celebratory release.

Each sneaker is executed in monochrome shades, highlighting the contrasting blue sockliner, which features logos from both Ghostly and Vans. The white Slip-On sports a tonal upper and midsole, with a stark black foxing stripe, while its darker counterpart, the Sk8-Hi, offers a black canvas upper and rubber midsole, juxtaposed against a white leather Jazz Stripe. Each model is emblazoned with an all-over 3M print of the Ghostly logo, offering a subtle flash of visual interest to complement the matte eyelets.

Head to Vans’ for more information and to purchase the sneakers on October 1, along with stockists like Blends, Bodega, Concepts and Notre.

 After the Nike Adapt Huarache “Opti-Yellow” officially released, the innovative silhouette now gets an on-foot look as well as an example of how it works.

The power-lacing system and LED lights in the sole unit are inspired by the Nike MAG. Lacing has been refined and is controlled through a dedicated Nike app, which has indicators on the screen to tighten and loosen the sneakers.

A closer look at the Nike Adapt Huarache “Opti-Yellow” shows the breathable mesh upper in detail, getting up close to the various panels and layers that make up the shoe’s body. A standout feature of the shoe is its transparent vamp overlay, which acts as the lacing system by tightening and becoming flush to the upper. It sports technical information all-around and is attached to the “FIT ADAPT” heel clip, black sole unit with its LED component and a rounded-triangular shaped Nike Swoosh tag.

Rounding off the shoe is the color-changing LED light on the sole unit, which is also controlled in-app.

 Stop me when this sounds familiar; Ads work.
They really do. With so many TV shows wanting all attention. Just being great is not enough.  You have to let us know your ear. Hulu did just that.  Hitting me with the Ramy ads in-between IG stories. Even before the show came out. Which is funny cause I started watching two weeks ago. Done now, but I was late to the party. The ads worked before I knew it was there and I knew it would be funny. So. When I finished Orange is The New Black, I knew where I was headed. To Riverdale.  Ramy wasn't last on the list cause it's weak. It was last cause it's new. So I already had quality time with the others. This had to grow a new.

Ramy Hassan is a first-generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. He becomes caught between a Muslim community that thinks life is a moral test and a millennial generation that believes life has no consequences. Through it all, he's still trying to do the things that most 20-somethings do, like a date. He is essentially a guy who is torn between praying on Fridays and going to parties on Friday nights. Which side will win out in this seemingly endless internal battle?

 Puma continues to stylize its RS-X Softcase Sneakers, following up monochromatic renditions of the silhouette, from back in July, with two new iterations decked in vibrant pop colors.

Dubbed “High Rise/Blue Turquoise,” the first colorway is dominated by a silvery metallic finish, complemented by bright hits turquoise. A large pull-tab is placed at the tongue marked with “RS-X” branding over soft mesh textiles. Working down to the main body of the sneaker, Puma’s side stripe logo is subtly debossed with thin lines, while “RS Running System” is stamped at the rear quarter. All of these details sit atop a chunky white midsole that serves as a nod to the original mold of the ’80s runner. The next colorway features black upper collars, a white body and a greyed-out midsole. Thin streaks of red show up at the heel pull, the tongue tab and the rear quarter, while tiny purple accents grace the midsole and outsole as finishing notes to the piece.

Both colorways of the Puma RS-X Softcase Sneakers are currently available at for $110 USD.
