Stranger Things fans, UNITE! Nike and Netflix take you into the “Upside Down” with these 1985 kicks that reference Hawkins High’s green and orange color scheme.
The Stranger Things X Nike Air Tailwind 79 OG pack was first released at the San Diego Comic-Con.
The shoe features a secret code which can be seen if the insoles are pulled up. The code, printed in English and Russian, was seen and cracked by Steve (Joe Keery), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Robin (Maya Hawke) in the latest season of the Netflix series.
The shoes will be available starting August 21 and fans from all around the globe couldn’t be more excited.
THERE’S MORE: Nike and Netflix will also produce caps and hoodies that are Hawkins High inspired.
The first drop of the collaborative pieces incorporate the school’s green and orange theme, and look like they have been pulled straight from the ’80s.

Stranger Things is a 2016 American science fiction series set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana. The story exposes Hawkins National Laboratory which performs secret paranormal and supernatural experiments, including those that involve human test subjects.
The researchers unintentionally opened a portal to an alternate dimension called the “Upside Down”.
In the series’ first season, the Upside Down started to affect the town of Hawkins when Will Byers was abducted by a creature from the said dimension.
