Nike Air Tailwind 79 Shoes
Seen here in a vibrant starfish and midnight navy colourway, these Nike Air Tailwind 79 Shoes have synthetic uppers with smooth suede overlays around the toes, heel and laces border. On either side of the foot elongated Swoosh ticks have been cut from midnight navy coloured leather and continue around to the top of the heel where capitalised ‘Nike’ lettering has been printed on top in a starfish tone. For a secure fit, white cotton laces sit on top of the exposed foam tongue which has a textural fabric topside and raw edge. A white woven label wraps around the top of the tongue and shows Nike Swoosh branding. Throughout the inside a mesh lining has been added for comfort and a Nike Air unit has been inserted within the heel. A signature detail of the design, the white midsole is exaggerated around the back of the foot and a waffle traction pattern continues upwards at the toes and on the heel.
Having made its debut in the 1978 Honolulu Marathon, the Nike Air Tailwind Shoes have returned in a ‘79’ edition that uses materials, shapes and colours that are as close to the original as possible. Designed for everyday wear, the array of colourways highlight the design’s ability to take both bright colour pops and more subdued tones whilst always capturing its classic, retro appeal.
