Nike have dropped the OG pack, three iconic sneakers including The Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind 79. They are claiming that the OG pack were created in 1985 for Hawkins High Athletic Department but somehow darker forces were at play and the sneakers went missing – assumed lost to Hawkins otherworld, the deep dark dimension that once took Will. Now 34 years later this OG pack has reappeared, quite miraculously. Wish we could have said the same for Barbara. Yes, Nike have released a Stranger Things collaboration and we like it. Granted, it doesn’t take much to get us all riled up about sneakers. Add a bit of Nike and some faux-nostalgia courtesy of the cult series makes 34 years in the ‘upside down’ seem worth it.
