The Día de Muertos celebration has become an annual tradition for Nike, with the brand releasing new styles around the Mexican holiday celebration in October. For 2022, the Swoosh is releasing this new set of Air Force 1 and Dunk colorways.
According to Nike, the Air Force 1 Low “Dia de Muertos” pictured here is inspired by the Pan de Muerto, which is a circular-shaped bread typically baked for the holidays to symbolize the cycle of life and death. For the Dunk High, the upper features an intricate pattern that references several common objects found in ofrendas, which are the offerings placed on altars that honor deceased loved ones and help guide their souls home.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low and Dunk High “Día de Muertos” colorways will drop on October 26 via SNKRS for $140 each. Take a closer look at both pairs below.
