Celebrating the origins of Blue Ribbon Sports — Nike’s original namesake — the Air Max Tailwind IV goes just a bit further back in time from its 1999 debut, ushering in a palette swap true to the retro imprint’s patriotic form. Red, white, and blue lie at heart of the core presentation with the more statement tones taking a backseat to the neutral at the majority of the construction. Composed of supportive hardshell, mesh base layers, and a slightly rough-textured leather, the pair is one mostly versatile in a sense more retro. Silver piping adds overt separating from overlay to under while embroidered swooshes and black-dressed laces create more noteworthy contrast; elsewhere, the pair boasts a subtle print of the model’s originating year with a fitting “BRS 1000” following right after. Orange checks at the toe and matching inners of the bubble further the colorful while the eye stays brandish with ornate red and blue detailing. Grab a look at the pair here and find it rolling out to select retailers and Nike.com soon.
