Nike is reintroducing the shoe that put the words "Nike Air" into our vocabulary, the Tailwind. Originally released in 1978 for the Honolulu Marathon, the Tailwind is getting a global re-release in limited quantities this month. The shoe was the first Nike to use an air sole unit, a technology introduced to them in 1977 by aerospace tech specialist, Frank Rudy. Link
