Throwback to a Nike Original
The Nike Men’s Air Tailwind ’79 has an illustrious history in the world of running. It first made an appearance in the 1978 Honolulu Marathon and exploded onto the scene as the first shoe to contain full-length Nike Air. Such cushioning and comfort were unheard of in a running shoe, but the idea quickly caught on, making the Nike Men’s Air Tailwind ’79 a vital piece of running shoe history.
Performance-Minded for the Avid Runner
Today’s Nike Men’s Air Tailwind ’79 features all of the best design elements of the original with a few modern upgrades. The current iteration still features a nylon upper paired with silver mesh to create the aura of the shoe being as fast as the wind (an intention of the original design). And naturally, the shoe still has a full-length Nike Air unit, upgraded with the latest specs, to provide lightweight cushioning in every step.
Nike Men’s Air Tailwind ’79 features:
• Iconic style includes silver mesh and nylon upper to mimic original design as closely as possible.
• Full-length Nike Air unit gives your foot the ultimate in comfort without weighing down the shoe.
• Rubber outsole includes waffle traction pattern to give you secure footing no matter the surface.
