Many sneakers claim the status of mythical sneaker, but few actually deserve it. The Nike Air Tailwind is one of those rare trainers that made history. This performance running shoe was pre-released right before the 1978 Honolulu marathon and the first to feature Nike’s signature cushioning technology, to the benefit of runners worldwide.
As an homage to their first “Air”, Nike is reissuing this sneaker as a Quickstrike with a classic vintage finish in its original metallic silver and blue spark colourway.
