In the summer of 1985, a flight of trucks were sent from Nike HQ to make multiple stops across the US to deliver a shipment of sneakers and varsity apparel.
However, these trucks never made it to their intended destinations. Instead, they were last caught on camera passing through the Indiana city of Hawkins.
Flash forward, 34 years later and finally, the lost shipment has been discovered.
Above the Clouds is excited to welcome Nike’s collab with hit Netflix TV show Stranger things. A hit TV show first released in 2016, which seamlessly combines the true ‘coming of age’ genre with sci-fi and romance and gives meaning to ‘The Upside Down’.
Nike has once again, delivered an exceptional blast from the past in their most recent collab: a capsule of retro silhouettes such as the Cortez, the Tailwind ‘79 and a mid cut Blazer.
The capsule is appropriately titled ‘Hawkins High-School’ and flaunts the school’s team colours in Green, Red and white. They are finished with Hawkins High’s tiger mascot, which is strategically placed around the back and upper of the shoe. ‘Nike x Stranger things’ branding on the tongue is also visible from front view.
Nothing screams more 80s nostalgia than this. Take a look below;
The Blazer Mid
and the Tailwind '79
Accompanied with the sneaker trio is an apparel duo that includes a hoodie and tee.
The hoodie in Hawkins green boasts ‘Hawkins Phys. Ed’ across the chest. It’s the perfect throwback to sweaty PE classes.
Next, is the t-shirt in heather grey with green text across the chest that sports the school ‘Hawkins High School’. It really makes you feel like you’re back in 85’ Hawkins.
Get ready to be transported back to 1985 Indiana with Above the Clouds latest Nike collab with Stranger things. The collection will be dropping on the 27th of June with limited stock and sizes available.
