Where you can buy the Nike x Stranger Things Upside Down collection
The burn-to-reveal shoes are finally here.
Having already dropped two hugely successful Stranger Things inspired capsules, sportswear titan Nike has now released another collection to celebrate the epic Netflix show. We already got a sneak peek of the line, which includes three sneaker iterations, at an exclusive event held by footwear label BAIT, and it had us hoping that we would soon be able to get our hands on a pair of our very own.
It seems Nike has answered those prayers, because some of the kicks have already been released online at SSENSE and StockX. While it's yet to be announced where else the sneakers will drop, we're assuming that they'll at least land on the Nike site. If only we had telepathic powers.
What's in the collection?
Where the previous two Stranger Things collections featured some pretty bold colour schemes, the Upside Down collection is much more minimalistic in style. The Tailwind '79, Blazer and Cortez silhouettes are reimagined in neutral, yet retro designs for the capsule and also arrive in a textured "Sail" upper.
It wouldn't be a true Stranger Things collection without something a little wacky thrown in, which means that the sneakers are much more than meets the eye. Just hold a lighter to the rough fabric layer on the upper and reveal hidden printed text at the insole and a concealed logo in red at the heel. Bitchin'.

In addition to the strange heat-reactive hidden details, all three styles also feature white tonal laces along with Nike and Stranger Things co-branding on the tongue. Both pairs also come with alternative laces in black just in case you feel like turning the design Upside Down.
