Nike X Stranger Things 'Upside Down' Pack

Part three of the Nike x Stranger Things collaboration is set to release midnight tonight, 12am (AEST) Tuesday, 13th August.

The dark side of Hawkins comes to life with a trio of Blazer, Cortez, and Tailwinds all wrapped up in a tonal sail upper, but beneath sits a deep royal finish ready to be worn, torn, and ripped away. A series of coinciding tees, caps, and sweatpants will also release alongside the shoes. Don’t sweat it, if you’re looking for the hoodies they’re a little delayed, and will release at a later date.

All three silhouettes will release through our online store at midnight tonight. Sizes US6 through to US12 (including some half sizes) will be available for $170AUD.

Until midnight tonight, we'll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump...

Nike Cortez '72 Shoe Dog Pack

Nike co-founder and chairman Phil Knight‘s “Shoe Dog” memoir is a fascinating look into both Knight’s life and the early days of his company. Nike pay homage to some interesting parts of his memoirs with the latest Cortez '72 'Shoe Dog Pack'.

Picking apart one of the most interesting of Knight’s tales, the pack brings to life a trifecta of of the Cortez both acknowledging the obvious final choice and nods to two lesser-known brand names that didn’t make the cut (Dimension Six and Peregrine). Each shoe is dressed in a classic red (heavily detailed embroidery), white, and blue colour scheme that’s true to the original 1972 release and each also features an ultra-slim cut, thin midsole, and premium leather upper.

The Nike-centric pair features designer Carolyn Davidson’s original slim swoosh on its side, while the Dimension Six opts for a blue panelling overlaid with a red circle and type-set. The Peregrine pair then uses a swift red falcon graphic with gold text on its top wing.

You also may notice that each pair features a toe cap, toebox overlay, and heel pull tab, embellishments that are not present on modern-day Cortez releases. This is because the original ’72 Cortez in fact drew inspiration from Onitsuka Tiger and their Corsair, a shoe that Knight and Bill Bowerman helped create and were still distributing for the Japanese brand under their “Blue Ribbon Sports” label during the early days of Nike.

These interesting pieces of Nike history have been brought to life and will be available at 12am through our online store this coming Wednesday the 24th of July.

All three pairs will be available in sizes US7.5 through to US12 (including some half sizes) for $170AUD.

Nike X Stranger Things

In the summer of 1985, several transport vehicles departed from Nike HQ in Beaverton, Oregon, carrying special product shipments headed to multiple locations across the US. Unfortunately, a few of the shipments never made it to their destination. These vehicles all had one thing in common…they were last seen on surveillance footage passing through Hawkins, Indiana. Nike, concerned and confused, never mentioned these missing shipments to anyone for fear that something supernatural was at play.

34 years later, signs of the missing shipments are popping up, piece by piece, and it’s clear that there is something deeper, darker and more evil brewing. Fortunately, some of the missing shipments have been located. Their contents are what we now know as iconic Nike styles: the Cortez, Blazer and Air Tailwind 79. Introduced alongside matching apparel, these classic Nike silhouettes were originally intended for the Hawkins High Athletic Dept and feature green and orange color combos with Hawkins High logos. Each shoe comes complete with original-inspired Nike packaging and special edition pins.

The collection is set to release this coming Thursday the 27th of June.

Sizes US6 through to US12 including some half sizes will be available in all three silhouettes.

- Cortez - $180AUD
- Blazer Mid - $180AUD
- Air Tailwind 79 - $180AUD

Sizes Small through to Extra Large will be available in the athletic department apparel.

- SS Tee - $45AUD
- Club Pullover Hoodie - $80AUD
- Club Pant - $75AUD
- Pro Cap - $40AUD

Four decades ago Nike started on the track. At the University of Oregon, Bill Bowerman began testing footwear ideas with his athletes, and together with Steve Prefontaine, and Kenny Moore, the iconic Cortez began to take shape. During one of his many runs, Moore broke his foot leading to Bowerman to critique his running shoes. This lead to his creation of a new shoe with a first-of-its-kind, full-length midsole cushioning design.

In celebrating 45 years of the Cortez, Nike have revisited three defining moments in all of their iconically coveted retro glory. Wrapped in blue suedes, the first of three Cortez Premiums give a nod to the run that ended in Kenny Moore’s broken third Metatarsal. The blue suede takes inspiration from the arch support-less footwear worn by Moore when the injury occurred. X-Rays showing Moore’s injured foot cover the sicklier, while the attached lace bag features a dime graphic inspired by the call Moore made to Bowerman.

Number two comes wrapped in supple soft leathers, the swoosh-less upper bearing Moore’s permanent marker insignia. Based on the first full-length midsole prototype Bowerman cobbled for Moore when he broke his foot. Inside, the shoe features a sock liner displaying Moore’s training regiment, which was put together by Bowerman.

On the 7 December 1969, Kenny Moore raced through the city streets of Fukuoka, Japan to break yet another record in his already brilliant career: the fastest marathon run by an American. This special-edition Cortez, constructed in OG nylon and suede, arrives decked out in the colours of that historic marathon. It sports Moore’s record-setting race time debossed on the heel counter, plus a sockliner graphic inspired by the Japanese streets he ran that faithful day.

All three colourways of the Nike Classic Cortez Premium Quick Strike ‘Kenny Moore’ will launch in store and online tomorrow morning. Pairs will release in store at our Lower Grounds Store Basement Level, 15 McKillop Street tomorrow morning from 11am with any remaining pairs online soon after.

All three colourways will be available in sizes US8 through to US12 (including some half sizes) for $150. Until midnight tonight, we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump...
