Model: Cortez, Blazer Mid, and Air Tailwind 79
Key Features: The first Stranger Things x Nike sneaker drop references Hawkins High’s green and orange color scheme and its tiger mascot, while the apparel drop features phys-ed-style 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 drops 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 1 (“OG Pack”)
Editor’s Notes: The first part of Nike’s Stranger Things collaboration drops tomorrow, June 27, after being teased and leaked over the last few months. The collection comprises three sneaker styles, a Cortez, Blazer Mid, and Air Tailwind 79, each coming in two colorways, as well as an accompanying apparel collection.
Season three of Stranger Things returns 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, and expect to see some classic Nike footwear on the feet of the characters in the new season.
The Hawkins High-themed capsule is set for release on June 27, followed by the “OG Pack” on July 1. Season three of Stranger Things lands on Netflix on July 4.
