The Nike Tailwind ’79, though once a greater part of last year’s Stranger Things collaboration, has only seen so few releases since the start of 2020. That, however, is slowly changing for the better as the brand forgoes palettes swaps for a newly fabricated construction. Instead of the typical retro pairings, the latest from the model applies overlays of hairy suede, with their indigo tones matching closely the woven base just underneath. This denim textile, which separates across what is typical a seamless backdrop, switches abruptly to an alternating pattern, one that is more replete with contrast white stitch. It warps diagonally all across — stopping at the eye stay’s much smoother materials — while the toe box’s swatch dots in departure as if an homage to the classic Sashiko techniques popularized overseas. Elsewhere, heel branding is marked by brighter red threads, contrasting against darker navys and adjacent to linings of a more sapphire likeness. Grab a detailed look at the pair here and find it available now at Nike.com for a price of $100 USD.
