Nike Just Announced a Collab with "Stranger Things" and It's a Flashback to the '80s
You're about to get *all* the Hawkins High gear.
We've all been counting down the days until the third season of Stranger Things hits Netflix on July 4. It comes as no surprise that brands across the board are getting in on the excitement—including Nike. The sportswear giant recently announced the release of a sneaker collection as an ode to the show.
The new Nike X Stranger Things collaboration will take you right back to '80s, serving up a dose of nostalgia you didn't know you needed. And to make this collection even more special, Nike really went all out on the ~details~. (Related: Nike Is Going Luxury with a High-End Collaboration)
Let us elaborate: For starters, the collaborative capsule will have not one, but two drops, each highlighting certain aspects of the show.
The first drop, dubbed the "Hawkins High Collection," happens on June 27 and will feature sneakers emblazoned with the school's Tiger mascot and its signature green and orange colors. (Did you know Nike dropped its first collection made specifically for yoga?)
The modern take on the retro-style sneakers include:
The Nike X Stranger Things Blazer Mid (Available June 27; $120)
The Nike X Stranger Things Air Tailwind 79 (Available June 27; $120)
The Nike X Stranger Things Cortez (Available June 27; $120)
Fun fact: All three of these sneakers are Nike classics and were actually available in the summer of 1985, which is when the new season of Stranger Things is set to take place. That's why the iconic year is sprawled across the back of some of the shoes.
To complete your look, pair your '80s-inspired sneakers with some Hawkins High sweatshirts and tees.
The second drop, happening on July 1, is called the "OG Collection." It'll feature the same shoes in red, white, and blue to celebrate the show's Fourth of July debut. Each pair of sneakers will also include a special fireworks display sock liner that'll help you get in touch with your inner patriot. Take a look:
The Nike X Stranger Things Blazer Mid (Available July 1; $120)
The Nike X Stranger Things Air Tailwind 79 (Available July 1; $120)
The Nike X Stranger Things Cortez (Available July 1; $120)
All you have to do is mark your calendar, and rest easy knowing that you'll look stylish AF while running away from Dr. Brenner, the Demogorgon, and any other creepy-crawlies the Duffer Brothers are hiding up their sleeves for the new season.
