On the night before Halloween, tech giant Apple had to get in on the holiday fun. The company hosted its "Scary Fast" event, which included an appearance from Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Thanks to the late-great Steve Jobs, tech executives receive careful observation of their attire - especially their sneakers. While Cook spoke about the new product launch, many sneakerheads were focused on his footwear.

Cook wore a pair of all-black Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. While the colorway did match his outfit and the scary season, the shoes have become a meme in the sneaker community. Many people associate all-black Nike Air Force 1s with illicit and dangerous activity.
So, naturally, the internet immediately responded to Cook's message with memes about his sneakers. For those wondering, the Nike Air Force 1 sneakers are available in an abundance of styles and colorways on the Nike website.
It is not easy running the largest electronics company in the world, and it is even more difficult to please critics on social media. We applaud Cook for his choice of footwear and can't wait to break down what he wears next. Follow Men's Journal Sneakers for all your shoe news around the world.
