Stranger Things x Vans Collaboration Debuts Hellfire Club Shoes

The memory of Stranger Things’ spectacular Season 4 is still alive and kicking in the minds of fans, which is why Vans has opted to collaborate with the show in order to bring fans a must-have pair of sneakers.

In addition to Vans’ collaboration with Stranger Things, the Netflix series also teamed up with Nike this year to debut a collection of blazers and low tops in the style of Hawkins High.

Created by The Duffer Brothers for Netflix, the science-fiction horror drama Stranger Things first aired in 2016 starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Natalia Dyer, and many more, set in the town of Hawkings, Indiana during the 1980s where supernatural events occur.
