The same year that Sneakersnstuff opened their doors in Stockholm, Nike introduced the trailblazing Air Max Tailwind 4. So, when it came time for SNS and the Swoosh to team up for their latest collaboration, the silhouette was a natural and obvious canvas, as 2019 marks the 20th anniversary for all involved.
Fans have to go back another 20 years, though, for the source of inspiration behind the design: an unreleased prototype of the original Tailwind. Like that archival OG, these rock a Cobalt Tint/Chrome Yellow/Sail combo to go along with a bold black sole unit. Premium brown leather lines the interior, while co-branding has been limited to a commemorative nod on the tongue of the left shoe.
Fans can enter the raffle for one of the 1,999 pairs now. A release is set for September 18.
