The vintage styling of Nike’s Tailwind 79 silhouette has garnered quite a decent amount of praise, attracting the nostalgic side of many a sneakerhead while bringing back old fans of the silhouette. With many OG releases flying off the shelves, the Beaverton Brand could not simply let the classic model fade into obscurity once again, pushing them to release a few more colorways that honor the original in every aspect. With the previous iterations being much more subtle in their design, the newest to surface is a bold Gym Red rendition that adorns most of the upper in the sultry tone while the tongue, laces, swoosh, and midsole are kept a bright white. Though surely a familiar set piece, this forthcoming release is undoubtedly a fresh tooling, and will age well once worn lovingly. Releasing February 1st, 2019, the Nike Air Tailwind 79 will be sure to hit Nike.com as well as select retailers at a price point of $100 USD.
