Before their was Air Max there was just Air technology. The gas encapsulated in polyurethane on the shoe’s base became a staple for the Swoosh thanks to inventor M. Frank Rudy, but it wasn’t displayed until Tinker designed the Air Max 1. The first shoe to implement the technology was the Nike Air Tailwind, and that fact can’t be overlooked. Today the shoe continues to be retroed featuring that nylon upper in a number of vibrant colorways, as this Vivid Sulfur/Action Red pair proves that the shoe can hold down some new shades.

The Nike Air Max 1 was the first shoe to expose its Air cushioning, but the Nike Air Tailwind was the first sneaker to ever show up with that Frank Rudy system in place. Believe it or not they’re still going strong today – there was a retro rollout a couple of years ago that helped a new generation get familiar with the silhouette and there’s been a slow but steady stream since then. Latest for the revolutionary shoe is this violet force and anthracite combination, which is available now from Size?. Head there to purchase after you check out the rest of the photos for them waiting below.

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.

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.
