- At San Francisco Comic Con, Nike released an exclusive Stranger Things sneaker with lots of hidden messages.
- The Air Tailwind 79 sneakers were sold exclusively at the event, but will re-launch online on August 13.
Netflix understands that after an eight-hour binge, viewers leave their couches with a Stranger Things-shaped hole in their hearts that needs filling. And thanks to the numerous collaborations they've dropped, you can fill yours with really cool merch.
During San Francisco Comic Con in July, Stranger Things unveiled the limited-edition sneaker in collaboration with streetwear retailer, BAIT. At first glance, they look like your typical retro trainer. But fans are finding some really cool hidden details, that even Bob the Brain might not have noticed.
For example: if you take a lighter to the back of the heel, it burns away the fabric to reveal the Stranger Things logo. And if you burn the white fabric of the rest of the shoe, it reveals a cool denim fabric underneath.
The message don't stop there, though. When you pull out the insole of the shoe, it reveals the top-secret Russian code from the show and handwritten notes. One of the notes – presumably written by Dustin – reads: "Suzie -- do you copy??"
Sneakerheads, rejoice, because these sneakers and their high-top counterpart, were supposed to be exclusively sold at Comic Con. But later this month, they will both be available to purchase online.
