Editor's Notes

The 'Tailwind' was the first sneaker to feature Nike's revolutionary full-length Air cushioning when it debuted at the Honolulu Marathon in 1978. Designed to look just like the original, this 'University' gold re-issue is made with lightweight shell and suede uppers and has rubber soles with waffle patterning for traction.


Small to size. See Size & Fit notes.
