Back at the top of 2012, Nike reintroduced the first sneaker to ever feature their patented Nike Air technology in the Nike Air Tailwind. The silhouette first appeared at the Honolulu Marathon in 1978 and up until this point in time has returned in a fairly traditional take on the retro featuring a suede and mesh construction. That all changes this summer as a new nylon take on the silhouette switches things up. This pair keeps things simple in a black and medium ash while a university gold swoosh adds a vibrant touch. As always, check out more images after the click and let us know if you’re feeling this understated Nike Air Tailwind by penning your thoughts in the comments section.

The Nike Air Tailwind is one of the oldest retro models that’s currently still floating around on sneaker shelves. The shoes were first introduced to the world back in 1978 when they went on sale at the Honolulu Marathon (A more standard retail release would go down the next year thanks to the sneaker’s success there). After that they were given a proper re-introduction back in 2012 and have popped every once and a while ever since. Which brings us today and this new black/silver/vivid blue pair. Get with us after the break for a more detailed look at these Tailwinds and keep your fingers crossed for a US release soon.

Resurrected after a (too?) long period in the Beaverton vaults, the Nike Air Tailwind is back for the first time in many years with a new crop of releases. Following up on the blue-accented OG Quickstrike comes this similarly simple yet satisfying Medium Grey and Action Red combo whose simple colorblocking is right at home in early 2012, but whose lines and materials let you know this is a classic even without the pre-yellowing from that VNTG QS drop. Click through to get a better look at this new drop of the first shoe ever cushioned by Frank Rudy’s revolutionary Nike Air cushion and grab yours from a Nike Sportswear stockist like Extra Butter.

Reintroducing the Nike Air Tailwind

January 25th, 2012 by | 2 comments

reintroducing the nike tailwind 8 Reintroducing the Nike Air Tailwind

Whenever you lace up in a pair of retro sneaks you are inevitably donning an emblem of history, some relic that broke ground based either on the embedded technology or a bold new aesthetic. The Nike Air Tailwind is certainly a piece of history in its own right, the first sneaker to ever feature the Nike Air cushioning, an idea brought to the House of Swoosh by ex-NASA specialist Frank Rudy. Introduced to the market in a vaguely ‘quickstrike’ fashion before the idea ever existed, a small number of pairs of the Nike Air Tailwind were available at the Honolulu Marathon in 1978, with a wider retail release taking place the following year.

The reintroduction of this first Nike Air shoe has gone down in a similar fashion, with other colorways initially popping up around the world. The OG look shown here, featuring the VNTG treatment to give it a bit of a historical feel, has now begun its slow trickle into premium Nike accounts across the globe. Follow us after the jump for the full shots from the reintroduction of the Nike Air Tailwind and be on the lookout for them at your local sneaker spot.
