Nike Air Tailwind
There are not many sneakers in history that have revolutionised an industry, but the Nike Air Tailwind most certainly falls under that category. First released in 1979 the Tailwind was the first sneaker to introduce Nikes Air Sole system, changing running sneaker design from that year onwards. This week we see the 2014 reissue drop, and staying true to it's original design the model features suede/mesh uppers, a contrasting padded tongue, leather swoosh and most importantly the iconic waffle sole.
