Model: Cortez, Blazer Mid, and Air Tailwind 79
Key Features: The first Stranger Things x Nike sneaker drop referenced Hawkins High’s green and orange color scheme and its tiger mascot, while the apparel drop featured phys-ed sweatsuits and T-shirts. The second capsule is called the “OG Pack” and each sneaker features a red, white, and blue color scheme as a nod to Independence Day (season three of the show opens during the holiday and dropped on Netflix on July 4). The heel references 1985 (the year in which the new season is set) and the shoes are completed by a firework display sock liner.
Release Date: June 27 (first drop) and July 12 (“OG Pack”)
Editor’s Notes: While the first part of Nike’s Stranger Things collaboration dropped on June 27, the second part is available today, July 12. The collection in its entirety comprises three sneaker styles, the Cortez, Blazer Mid, and Air Tailwind 79, each coming in two colorways, as well as an accompanying apparel collection.
Season three of Stranger Things premiered on Netflix on July 4, returning us to Hawkins, Indiana in 1985, with Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, and Max on the cusp of high school. Naturally, ’80s nostalgia is at the heart of the collab, with some classic Nike footwear also making it onto the feet of characters in the new season.
Check out campaign imagery for the entire collection (parts one and two) above, and detailed product shots of the second drop below.
