After news of a potential collaboration emerged last month, as well as yesterday’s mysterious tweet, Nike and Stranger Things have debuted a joint pack including the Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind silhouettes. The three silhouettes chosen are a nod to the ’80s nostalgia that runs throughout the Stranger Things series, culminating with this season’s 1985 setting.

The colorways of the first three sneakers in the release reference the green and orange color scheme of Hawkins High school. The Tailwind comes with 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 sneakers also feature the Hawkins High school’s tiger emblem.

The first drop from Nike and Stranger Things are set to release via the Nike web store on June 27 alongside a capsule of 1980s physical education-influenced pieces including sweat suits and T-shirts. This will then be followed up with a second release — dubbed the “OG Pack” — that will see the same silhouettes wrapped in a red, white and blue color palette marking the 1985 Independence Day. This pack will arrive on July 1. Each of these sneakers will also feature a special firework display lining.
