Original Story (July 31, 2019): After releasing, not one, but two 80’s-inspired collections to celebrate its third season, Stranger Things has once again teamed-up with Nike on a special range of collaborative sneaker silhouettes. Though the Tailwind 79 first dropped via BAIT’s exclusive San Diego Comic-Con hunt, they now see a wider release alongside a pair of complementary Cortezs.
Instead of the bold colorways featured in the aforementioned packs, this time around the two entities have opted for a toned down textural sail upper. For these, the outer upper can also be faded away to reveal a dark denim inner layer. Additionally, the pairs feature contrasting red hits which dresses the Nike and Stranger Things co-branding on the tongue tabs and insoles, along with the Nike branding on the heels.
