Nike Halloween Pack

With Halloween quickly approaching, the good people at Nike will release their Halloween pack. The pack will consist of a Dunk High Premium, Dunk Low, Air Force 1 LE, and Vandal High (see right).

Three of the four shoes with have a glow-in-the-dark element -- perfect for late night tricks (or treats). The Vandal and the Air Force 1 display tone-on-tone black cat embellishments, while the Dunk features the ghost embellishment and the Dunk High Premium features a bat embellishment.

To all the guys out there, don't get gassed because this pack will only be available in Youth and women's sizes.

The Great Outdoors

ACG (All Conditions Gear) was developed to handle the outdoor elements, and features two key traits: water resistance and durability. Nike has created an AF1 mid that mirrors some of the ACG design and color palettes. With boot laces and a ballistic nylon mesh set on the classic AF1 silhouette, the shoe has mass appeal and flavor.
