Dia de los Muertos, or better known to us in plain English as "Day of the Dead", is a holiday which follows on the heel of one of America's greatest annual parties-- Halloween. While the latter calls for a party, the former is a more somber occasion celebrated by Mexicans and Latin Americans to remember and pray for family members who had passed.
Drawing on skulls and graphics from this occasion, Nike announced the "Day of the Dead" pack as a part of its Holiday 2009 line-up back in September. Consisting of a black Air Max 90, Dunk Hi and a white Dunk Low, all kicks feature eclectic graphics of florals and skulls in manner of Dia de los Muertos. Similarly colorful with a mix of contrasting shades such as purple, green and orange, the kicks translate the bright colors used in the holiday. Other than the upper, the insoles also keeps in line with the theme and feature skull graphics.
Join in the celebration with Nike as the Dunk Hi and Air Max 90 versions will be dropping at Proper on Halloween, which is coincidentally the eve of the holiday.
Release Date: October 31st (Saturday)
