With Season 3 set to hit Netflix in July, the Stranger Things hype-wagon is about to reach fever pitch. Not only is there some new LEGO, a Polaroid camera, and an H&M collection, it’s just been announced that Nike is joining the collaborative party with its very own Hawkins collection.
Yes, after relentless teasing, Nike’s “Missing Shipment” has finally been located and the Swoosh has unveiled their highly-anticipated Stranger Things collection. It features three 80’s-influenced silhouettes – the Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind – each donning the green and orange colour scheme of Hawkins High school.
The Tailwind comes in a green upper, which is offset with a bright orange Swoosh and a white midsole unit. For the other two silhouettes — the Cortez and Blazer — the orange and green detailing appears across the white upper. All three pairs feature the Hawkins High tiger emblem and a Stranger Things logo on the tongue.
The first drop of the Nike x Stranger Things capsule also incorporates Hawkins High’s green and orange colour scheme and Tiger mascot into a mix of apparel, with sweat suits and complementary T-shirts channelling the 80s athletic aesthetic.
The first drop from Nike and Stranger Things collection is set to release on the Nike Website on Thursday 27th June, while a second release set for 1st July — dubbed the “OG Pack” —will see the same silhouettes wrapped in a red, white and blue colourways to mark the 1985 Independence Day. The whole collection will be priced between £25-£95.
In other Stranger Things news, IKEA have just revealed a photoseries which recreates three of TV’s most iconic living rooms with some of IKEA’s own furniture pieces, including Friends and The Simpsons, as well as Stranger Things.
