You think Kanye West was the first pop-star to get his own Nike shoe? Well, technically speaking, he was the first to have a pair of Nikes bearing his name, but that trend traces back to the turn of the decade into the 1980’s. This shimmering, glittery pair of Tailwinds was inspired by the energetic disco scene and given out to Friends and Family of the Beaverton core, making its way on the feet of the King of Pop Michael Jackson and the King of chest-hair David Hasselhoff. With the original Tailwind already making a come-back this year, Nike deemed it fitting to bringing back one of the most story-telling Nikes of all-time to the public, and it appears that some spots overseas have already let these go. Below we have a nice detailed gallery of the Nike Tailwind Night Track Retro below, so take a good look and if you’re interested in copping one of most funkiest Retro sneakers of all time, grab one of the available pairs online like this one from oasion45 on eBay.
