These Blazer Mid Nike shoes feature a black patent upper and an X-ray image of a foot on the side—certainly a bit out of the norm for Nike. I’m sure that sneakerheads everywhere will be salavating over these kicks, especially with Halloween right around the corner.

These Nike Blazer Mid shoes are now available at the Nike 21 Mercer store in NYC.

Implications - The popularity of movies like Twilight have brought macabre aesthetics and anatomical themes into the spotlight. Products that highlight the human form, like these sneakers that feature X-ray images of feet, play on this theme in an artistic way. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by similarly infusing their products with a touch of the macabre.
