The Return of ’80s Footwear
If there’s one thing that the ’80s is known for, it’s fashion. This was an era characterised by bright colours and bold outfit accessories, be they shoulder pads or oversized earrings. Taking place during this time frame, Stranger Things (a Netflix TV series that debuted in 2016) doesn’t shy away from these elements, and the characters — some examples of which are Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Lucas Sinclair, and Max Mayfield — are responsible for the return of many long-lost trends. We’re looking at you and your outrageous haircut, Steve Harrington.
The point we’re trying to make is that when it comes to this show, anything goes. Our in-house team, equipped with this creative liberty, have sought to create a range of Stranger Things shoes that are as eye-catching as any piece of clothing from this decade. Each design pulls from an aspect of the lore, with artwork recreating the horrifying face of the Demogorgon and the logo of the Hellfire Club (founded by Hawkins High’s very own Eddie Munson).
Get Your Stranger Things Trainers
Akedo is a brand that caters to the wants of pop-culture fans, providing high-quality footwear that would otherwise be unavailable. Our Stranger Things shoes are no different. Each pair of these high-top trainers balances TV-inspired imagery with accepted style, so you can walk the streets (of our dimension or the Upside Down) confidently.
Aside from a few colour variations, no two pairs of these shoes are alike. You can show your support for the Hawkins High Tigers by repping their logo or remind the world that Vecna is coming with footwear showing off his monstrous form.
