Nike VNTG Tailwind

  The Nike Air Tailwind '79 is very important to Nike history for one big reason: It's the first shoe to utilize Nike Air.  The Tailwind actually debuted Nike's Air technology in Hawaii during the Honolulu Marathon in 1978 and then officially released in 1979. This technology was discovered by NASA on how to contain air in a plastic container.  You can grab this piece of sneaker history in a clean Grey/Blue colorway with the vintage treatment now at Shop412.
