Set in the summer of 1985, this season of “Stranger Things” finds small-town Hawkins, Indiana, in the midst of change (no surprise). The show’s core protagonist group is on the cusp of high school, grappling with themes of love and friendship, and tackling a looming danger.
As in the prior two seasons, 1980s nostalgia informs the Hawkins scene. This extends to the costuming, where classic Nike footwear and brand marks are common. Off-screen, this nostalgia is the impetus for the Nike Stranger Things collection, highlighting the Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind.
I think I’d love some of the apparel (the shirt, hoodie and hat speak to me), but this is going to be impossible to buy, right?
