Vans and Stranger Things have teamed up for a collection of sneakers inspired by the show’s recent fourth season, using Hellfire Club and Surfer Boy Pizza-inspired graphics across a range of silhouettes.

Netflix’s Stranger Things has released a number of sneakers in the years since its debut, often reflecting the themes and characters of each season. For their fourth entry in the hit television show, the beloved IP has lent itself to California’s Vans for a graphic-heavy collection of sneakers inspired by recent events within the show. Featuring a total of six styles, silhouettes include the Old Skool, Sk8-Hi, Era, Authentic, and Slip-On. First up, the simple Slip-On comes in black canvas with an all-over print of a fiery Stranger Things logo, which is shared with a pair of the Authentic that splits between the logo print and a print of the show’s posters from various seasons. The Old Skool also utilizes the poster print, layering it underneath smooth black suede. Several sneakers in the project commemorate the Hellfire Club, the boys’ DND club at school, including two pairs of the Sk8-Hi and one Old Skool. Finally, the Era represents Surfer Boy Pizza, the Southern California establishment staffed by Argyle.


The upcoming collection from Stranger Things and Vans has been scheduled to drop later this week, on August 26th, 2022. Featuring a range of classic footwear from Vans with graphics inspired by ST’s fourth season, pairs will be available directly from the footwear brand’s website as well as select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look at the project, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Vans release news.
