As the first-ever pair of Nike shoes to feature an Air unit ensconced in its midsole, the Tailwind 79 is one of the most important silhouettes in the Swoosh Brand’s running lineage. Now, 40 years after it fully rolled out to market for the first time, it’s enjoying renewed interest as a sleek lifestyle favorite, and it recently appeared in a compelling combination of “Pacific Blue” and “Team Orange.” The colorful summertime tones play up the shoe’s retro vibe perfectly with a light blue nylon upper, blue suede overlays, and a bold orange midfoot Swoosh/heel piece. White laces and a white tongue tag with more throwback branding contrast with the white midsole, and a timeless waffle-patterned gum outsole finalizes the look.
