Nike is channelling your nostalgia for all things 1980s with the looming release of a Stranger Things collection.
The first drop of the collaborative capsule incorporates the Stranger Things Hawkins High’s green and orange colour scheme and Tiger mascot into a spirited mix of clothing and footwear.
Nike sweat suits are accompanied by complementary T-shirts resembling the ‘80s Physical education uniform, so let’s hope you have fond memories of gym class. Three sneaker styles match accordingly. They are the Nike Cortez, Blazer andTailwind 79. The pieces launch June 27.
A second drop of shoes arrives on July 1. Dubbed the “OG Pack,” each shoe carries a red, white and blue colour scheme celebrating Independence Day 1985 with a year marker on the heel and special firework display sock liner.
The upcoming Nike styles are releasing right in time for the third season of the hit Netflix series. Here’s the pitch for Stranger Things season 3:
It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms.
When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.
The Nike x Stranger Things collection rolls out across June 27 and July 1. Season 3 of Stranger Things debuts July 4 – American Independence Day.
