Something’s coming… and it’s in the shape of Nike shoes. Word is out that a possible collab between the acclaimed ’80s-inspired Netflix Original series Stranger Things and Nike, slated for a summer release.
The shoes in question seem to be three popular Nike sneakers — Cortez, Blazer Mid and Tailwind — as seen in a very curious Instagram post by Sneaker Freaker.
If you haven’t caught on yet, these sneakers all hail from the ’80s, and till today they still remain some of the most popular Nike kicks to date. In keeping with the times, the characters of Stranger Things have also been seen wearing them throughout the show, such as everyone’s favourite on-screen bromance Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), and Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo).
Additionally, thanks to your friendly neighbourhood sneaker leaker who goes by the Twitter handle @pyleaks, we may very well see some Nike apparel inspired by the popular show as well.
It seems these Stranger Things Nike sneakers and apparel are slated for a June/July release, just in time for the third season of the show. Also too look out for is the really cool 75810 LEGO Stranger Things Upside Down set, which also got leaked rather unceremoniously over the last month.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
