From FN:
There’s still plenty of time to put together the perfect Halloween costume and believe it or not, it can all start at the footwear. Building a costume around the proper pair of sneakers will give your look a boost of authenticity and attention to detail. See what we mean below with our picks below.


1. Kurt Cobain: Converse All Star Chuck Taylor’s

Late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s contributions to modern style are immeasurable, but it’s the timeless Chuck Taylor that stands out as his go-to sneaker choice.


2.  Jaden Smith: New Balance ProCourt

Jaden Smith is known for pushing the boundaries of style, but his latest sneaker choice is surprisingly subtle with the skate-ready New Balance Pro Court 213. To make them even closer to Smith’s pair, wear them over the next few weeks ahead of Halloween for a broken-in look.

3. Forrest Gump: Nike Cortez

When it comes to iconic sneaker moments on the big screen, Forrest Gump’s prominent feature of the Nike Cortez is in a class of its own. The brand recently reissued the model in the same colorway featured in the movie — running across the country is optional, of course.


4. Marty McFly/LeBron James: Nike LeBron 14 “2015” aka “Mag”


5. Kanye West: Yeezy Powerhouse “Calabasas”

Kanye West fans have a number of sneakers at their disposable to emulate the rapper-designer this Halloween, but the Yeezy Powerphase “Calabasas” is the most accessible of them all, with semi-wallet-friendly prices.
