Editor’s Notes: While the third season of Stranger Things infiltrates our Netflix queue, the shows promo has quickly taking over our wardrobe. For the season launch, the series collaborated with Highsnobiety on a collection of apparel paying homage to the show's most iconic locations, alongside a Hawkins High School and July 4th inspired collab with Nike. Today, the two have joined forces again for a new iteration of the Nike Tailwind 79 silhouette dropping exclusivity at BAIT.

Revealed at San Diego Comic Con, where got a bunch of new must-see trailers, BAIT announced the exclusive drop of the Tailwind collab with many hidden details. The model features a grey exterior fabric layer that can be burned away to reveal secret elements, logos, and messages underneath. Several details nod to the secret underground Russian base from the current season which aimed to re-open the gate into the Upside Down.

Take a closer look at the Stranger Things x Nike Tailwind collab in the gallery above. Hopefully, we'll get a wider global release soon.
