The Adidas Top Ten 2000 - Nightmare Before Christmas

Christmas is here, always a time for surprises in the sneaker world.  The NBA takes full advantage of the holiday with a schedule of games lasting from breakfast to dinner.  One of the most exciting times of the year has all shoe fanatics eager to see what will be worn on the court.  Of course, each company outfits their stars with special color schemes to make the day extra special.  For Adidas Basketball, the theme this year revolves around what is now a classic Christmas movie.  On this Christmas Eve our Spotlight Special features the Adidas Top Ten 2000 Nightmare Before Christmas.

A swirly purple upper fits the Nightmare Before Christmas theme perfectly

Based off the 1993 Tim Burton feature film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, this version of the Top Ten 2000 is one of the most luxurious basketball shoes ever produced.  An all purple upper seems as though it was taken straight from the movies.  The smooth synthetic leather has a swirly, hypnotic graphic pattern, giving a fluid look.  Black accents the purple at the midsole and lining to bring a dark touch.  Dual colored flat laces match perfectly, to break up the all purple.  A magical feeling is brought to the shoe with glow-in-the-dark areas on the outsole, Adidas logo on the lateral collar, and with the 12-24-12 date down the center of the tongue.  Finally, behind the tongue is stitched another “12-24-12” date to finish off the Christmas theme.

Glow-in-the-Dark is the icing on the cake

At first glance, this purple Top Ten 2000 just looks like a special color scheme.  In the context of the Christmas holiday, the theme and execution of the shoe brings everything together almost perfectly.  The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the more popular Christmas movies to be released in the past 20 years, and choosing it for a theme could not be more appropriate.  Add the glow in the dark feature and you have one of the best color schemes/themes of the season.  Released in time for Christmas, the Nightmare Before Christmas version of the Top Ten 2000 is available now at the Official Adidas Online Store.
