Air Max Tailwind UK

2019 marks two decades of Nike’s Air Max Tailwind IV and 20 years since world-renowned retailer Sneakersnstuff first opened their doors in Stockholm, Sweden back in 1999, so retailer and brand have teamed up to release an exclusive Tailwind IV in celebration of their shared anniversary. Inspired by an unreleased prototype colorway of the original Nike Tailwind ’79 OG, the collaboration nods to both the Tailwind line’s genesis in ’79 and the uncertainty of the impending new millenium that was present worldwide in ’99. The upper kicks things off with a white mesh base that’s overlaid with chilly blue suedes and synthetics, while a polarizing pop of style is present thanks to bright yellow hues on the throat/collar and a bronzed leather sockliner. This jarring-yet-artful mash of shades is all brought together by a black midsole with grey Air Max cushioning units.
Halfway between many a branching path of design, the Nike Air Max Tailwind IV takes some wild materials and colors for a spin this time around, taking a small and likely quick vacation from its many neutrals and OG schemes. What ensues is batch of statement elements with the base layers of black ballistic mesh being the one true neutral among the set. Silvers, overlaid right on top, bear a metallic finish of a robot far away in the distant future while additional orange accents mix in aesthetics of mountaineering in their rope styling and toggle fastener. Mint greens, which scattered across the piping and unders of the upper, are the most standout along the sole, reminding many of the glow-in-the-dark finishes found on iconic models like the Yeezy 2 or even the upcoming Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott. Grab a detailed look at the pair right here and find it rolling out to select retailers and Nike.com soon. The look is then capped off by a special hand-scrawled inscription on the left tongue that directly salutes 20 years of sneaker and sneaker store.
