The Fit

The Nike Cortez is one of my favorite sneakers of all time. They are comfy and compliment a variety of looks. The Cortez is as durable as it is comfortable to wear. The sneaker has a full-grain leather upper, an eva midsole for cushioning, and rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for traction. The classic Nike silhouette intended for the Hawkins High Athletic Dept, features green and orange color combos with Hawkins High logos on the Heel and midsole, and reflective detail outlining the Nike swoosh.The midsole also has, "Tiger Pride", printed with the Orange and green coloring. Lastly, the Nike x Stranger Things Logo is found on the heel of the midsole, and on the tongue.

The Packaging

Instead of a Monster, Dustin Funko Pop and Battle Eleven Funko Pop Found a brand new box of Nike Cortez's made specially for Hawkins High.

The packaging for this collaboration is top notch in my opinion. The Hawkins High green on the box features a vibrant glossy finish. The tissue lining in the box is also made to look like an authentic Washington Post from the show. Inside the box, you'll find three exclusive pins featuring the Nike x Stranger Things logo, Scoops Ahoy, and Hawkins High Phys Ed.

Netflix Stranger Things Season 3 

School's out and there's a brand new mall in the town of Hawkins, and our familiar crew find themselves on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group's dynamic, challenging them to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. 

In spirit of the show, I thought it would be fun to create a scene inspired from the first episode of season 3. 

It would have been cool if Funko included some attachable Nikes for the Stranger Things Pops. Funko still did a pretty good job on this series.
