Day Of The Incident 

On June 6, 1985, several transport vehicles departed from Nike HQ in Beaverton, Oregon; carrying special cargo headed to various locations in the U.S. Delivery vehicles intended for the Hawkins High Athletic Dept, were last seen on surveillance footage passing through Hawkins, Indiana. The shipments unfortunately, never made it to their destination.

THE LOST HAS BEEN FOUND.

Thirty four years later, a delivery truck, with Nike Branding, was found at the KITH store located in Los Angeles, CA. The vehicle was flipped on its side with Nike crates strewn all over a parking lot. The truck appeared to have been attacked by a large animal.  

 

The second shipment was recovered at the SVA Theater in Manhattan, NY. The truck was in better condition than its LA counterpart, but the same signs of attack  were shown on all the crates inside removed from the truck. Numerous boxes of iconic Nike styles of the Cortez, Blazer and Air Tailwind ‘79, with matching apparel; where found in perfect condition. Fortunately, the vigilant team at KITH were on the scene to bring order and understanding to the few of us that witnessed that survived the moment.
