The season is dropping on Independence Day, so it only makes sense that some of the gear features patriotic colors. These off-white, red, and blue sneakers also have "1985" printed on the back of each shoe. 

Nike continues its Stranger Things story with this description: "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."

Keeping up with the high school-themed story, all of the products were created with Hawkins High in mind. These sneakers feature the school colors and a tiger patch on the heel, symbolizing the Hawkins mascot. 

"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."

These retro styles are a part of Nike's iconic look from the '80s. The Hawkins High footwear drops at 10 a.m. on June 27, so fans can rock the Stranger Things style a week ahead of season three. The Hawkins High collection features, "Property of Hawkins HS Athletic Dept" on the inside of the shoe's tongue.

Staying on brand, these shoes feature the high school's colors and the matching tiger logo. The all-white look is very retro and looks like it time traveled from 1985. Prospective buyers can be notified through Nike's website, so as not to miss out on the special collection.

Nike has taken over Hawkins. 

The sneaker brand's Twitter account shared this image of a teenager riding his bike (classic Stranger Things) and coming across a tipped-over shipping van. The story is that a lost shipment of shoes heading toward Hawkins got lost in 1985 when monsters were taking over the Indiana town. 

Fans will have to wait to see if any of these kicks will make it onto the feet of characters in the show. Until then, set a notification for the sneaker's drop date for the Hawkins High Collection, June 27, and July 1 for the OG Collection. 

Grab 'em before the monsters do... again!
