With the third season of Netflix’s critically-acclaimed Sci-Fi show imminent – after relentless teasing – Nike’s “Missing Shipment” has finally been located and the brand has unveiled their highly-anticipated Stranger Things collection.
We’re pretty sure most of you will know or heard of Stranger Things, but in the unlikely scenario of you not, let us fill you in. The show takes place in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in the 1980s and follows a group of friends as they deal with mysterious creatures, supernatural powers and parallel worlds. With the third series set to see the main protagonists on the verge of high school in ’85, this ‘Hawkins High’ capsule perfectly encapsulates the era and delivers a fitting selection of Nike footwear and apparel.
An ode to Nike’s ‘80s sport-ready designs – the pack includes three of the Beaverton-brand’s most iconic styles: the Cortez, Tailwind ’79 and Blazer Mid. All three silhouettes arrive painted in Hawkins High-inspired hues and come ornamented with co-branding throughout.
Continuing the ’80s sport aesthetic, the nostalgic clothing collection comprises of comfy cotton tees, tracksuits and a snapback cap. Just like the footwear selection, the apparel follows suit and prints the garments with Hawkins High-influenced colourways and branding.
The Nike x Stranger Things ‘Hawkins High’ collection will be available via the size? website and in selected size? stores on Thursday 27th June, priced between £25-£95.
