Air Tailwind 79 OG
The Air Tailwind returns! This is probably Nike's most important sneaker. Originally conceived by aerospace scientists, this was the first ever sneaker to use pockets of air within the sole unit of a running shoe. It saw it's debut appearance at the Honolulu marathon in 1978 and had it's fist release for sale in 1979. This special QuickStrike edition sees the Tailwind 79 in it's OG 'Vast Grey / Photo Blue' colourway and features many of the DNA traits of Nike: waffle sole unit, suede and mesh uppers, foam tongue and the iconic fat Swoosh. It even comes with a pair of matching '79 reproduction socks!
