Show off your ‘Stranger Things’ fandom with socks, mini-towels from FamilyMart
Stars and Stripes July 21, 2022
Another wave of “Stranger Things” merchandise has rolled ashore in Japan with a limited line of merchandise at FamilyMart.
The convenience store chain partnered with Netflix to mark the release of the show’s fourth season.
This latest merchandise collection follows a pop-up store with “Stranger Things” items that opened from June 2 to July 14 in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district and a pop-up café in Shibuya called Stranger Pronto that’s open until Sept. 9.
The new line of “Stranger Things” merchandise consists of unisex socks and small towels and is part of Convenience Wear, a clothing line by Japanese fashion designer Hiroshi Ochiai. The line includes T-shirts, long-sleeves, tank tops, shorts and socks.
Instead of the signature socks that come in the black and white options with the FamilyMart colors of blue and green, the “Stranger Things” socks come in black or white with the show’s signature colors of blue, purple, red, black and pink. They’re neat, with the bright colors and the “Stranger Things” logo on the sole of the socks. They cost 429 yen, or about $3.11.
The towels are 539 yen. They come in stripes the same color as the socks with the “Stranger Things” label on the side.
