The return of the Nike Air Tailwind

The original Nike Airs are back. Well, not the originals - they probably smell quite tragic these days.

Released for runners of the '78 Honolulu Marathon, the original Nike Air Tailwind was the first trainer to introduce the revolutionary air-pocket technology of Frank Rudy - a design that's since found its way into a staggering number of Nike's most iconic sports shoes.

The new Tailwind '78 pack keeps many of the original suede and leather materials, but modernises the trainer with a new mesh design. Available in grey/black and black/silver colourways, the new edition are available for £70.
