Nike Air Tailwind 79 Shoes - University Gold / Team Red - White - Black

Sale price $90.00 Regular price $113.00 (£64.00 GBP)

Oh noes

Ready to add a flash of colour to any day out, the Nike Air Tailwind 79 Shoes have been updated with deep team red suede trims over the toe box, eyestays and heel. This contrasts sharply to the university gold nylon panels that extend from the side to the vamp, cut through only by a leather Swoosh. A cream tongue adds some neutrality to the shoe, with vintage branding that’s matched on the heel tab.

The first shoe to introduce a Zoom Air unit into the sockliner, responsive cushioning has been a key design feature from the start and it continues to deliver essential protection and comfort with every step. In addition to this a combination of materials around the collar ensures continuous support, added to by the traction-rich waffle outsole.

Designed over 40 years ago for the Honolulu Marathon, the Tailwind established an unmatched legacy through the introduction of the Zoom Air technology which was patented by the brand. This lay wake to generations of “bubble” technology that individually had their own significant cultural impacts.
